The Girl gets rave reviews

The DVD cover for Girl from the North CountryIf you happen to be in London before October 7, Girl from the North Country is something you must not miss. First of all, because the despair and loneliness that permeate the whole story are wonderfully mirrored by the well-chosen melodies of Bob Dylan, heartbreakingly rendered by the cast. Second, because Ciarán and Jim Norton are in a play by Conor McPherson.

Although he is the only one not to sing, dignified in his stoic acceptance of his bleak propects, Ciarán’s Nick exhibits an outstanding presence, especially when he towers over Shirley Henderson’s unsettling frailty.

Neither a musical, nor a “juke-box” play, McPherson’s work is beautiful and clever, and don’t be ashamed, if, when the lights fade out, you feel tears running down your cheeks.

A full cast recording of the play will be released on 29 September.
