  • The critically acclaimed, double Olivier Award-winning Old Vic production returns to London for a limited West End season at Gielgud Theatre.

    "Bob Dylan's songs have never sounded so heartbreakingly personal and universal. As close as mortals come to Heaven on earth." (BEN BRANTLEY, THE NEW YORK TIMES)

    1934. A time-weathered guesthouse in the heartland of America. Only a song can shake off the dust for one group of wayward souls-and old dreams may hold the promise of new beginnings. As they pass in and out of each other's lives, their stories awaken with passion, fury and extraordinary beauty.

    Re-imagining the music of Bob Dylan as roof-raising ensemble pieces and soul-stirring solos, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) writes and directs this heartbreaking and universal story about family and love. Hailed by the Observer as the 'No.1 Theatre show of the year' audiences now have the chance once again to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

    The cast will include Katie Brayben, Donald Sage Mackay, Anna Jane Casey and Rachel John.

    Katie Brayben will play Elizabeth Laine. Brayben originated the role of Carole King in the West End production of Beautiful, for which she was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Further credits include MAMMA MIA! and King Charles III.

    Donald Sage Mackay returns to the West End to play Nick Laine, after featuring in True West. Television credits include: Modern Family, Mad Men, Fraiser, The Good Wife, House, West Wing, Criminal Minds, Weeds, Star Trek Enterprise, ER and Scrubs. Film Credits include: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

    Anna-Jane Casey plays Mrs Burke, fresh from a UK tour of Calendar Girls. Previous West End credits include Billy Elliot, Stepping Out and Spamalot.

    West End regular Rachel John will join the cast as Mrs Neilsen. John's West End credits include: Hamilton, The Bodyguard, Memphis, We Will Rock You, Sister Act and Lion King.

    Full confirmed UK cast: Daniel Bailey (Ensemble), Colin Bates (Gene Laine), Katie Brayben (Elizabeth Laine), Anna Jane Casey (Mrs Burke), Nicholle Cherrie (Ensemble), David Ganly (Mr Burke), Simon Gordon (Ensemble), Steffan Harri (Elias Burke), David Haydn (Ensemble), Rachel John (Mrs Neilsen), Sidney Kean (Mr Perry), Finbar Lynch (Reverend Marlow), Donald Sage Mackay (Nick Laine), Gloria Obianyo (Marianne), Ferdy Roberts (Dr Walker) Wendy Somerville (Ensemble), Gemma Sutton (Katherine Draper) and Shaq Taylor (Joe Scott) and Alan Vicary (Ensemble).
