Ciarán on stage next Summer

Ciarán will be back in London next Summer for Conor McPherson’s new play Girl From the North Country.

Set during the Great Depression, in Duluth Minnesota, Girl From the North Country will have its world premiere at the Old Vic Theatre on July 26th. Directed by the author, the production will feature music and lyrics by Bob Dylan.

“I’m mixing songs together – it starts as one song and turns into another halfway through. And because the lyrics are real writing, real poetry, they have that ambiguity that almost anybody can say them and it means something. So you have got this tremendous freedom with the songs,” McPherson says of using Dylan lyrics in his work.
