Conor McPherson’s Girl From The North Country was an absolutely glorious thing at the Old Vic this summer and I’m pleased to see that its relatively slow-burning success has translated into a West End transfer. It is also gratifying to see that many of the original cast of this Bob Dylan musical (or play with songs if you’re precious like that) are remaining with the production, especially Shirley Henderson and Sheila Atim, who I suspect we should be looking out for come awards season.
The cast announced thus far for the transfer:
Sheila Atim plays Marianne Laine.
Hannah Azuonye is part of the ensemble.
Mary Doherty is part of the ensemble.
Bronagh Gallagher plays Mrs Burke.
David Ganly plays Mr. Burke.
Shirley Henderson plays Elizabeth Laine.
Ciaran Hinds plays Nick Laine.
Adam James plays Dr. Walker.
Claudia Jolly plays Katherine Draper.
Karl Johnson plays Mr Perry.
Arinzé Kene plays Joe Scott.
Emmanuel Kojo is part of the ensemble.
Debbie Kurup plays Mrs Neilsen.
Tim McMullan plays Reverend Walker.
Sam Reid plays Gene Laine.
Jack Shalloo plays Elias Burke.
