Set in 1934, the show uses the Dylan discography and a book by director Conor McPherson to offer a slice-of-life look at a small community in Duluth, Minnesota, where the Laine family operates a rundown guesthouse amid the Great Depression.

The musical made its world premiere at London’s Old Vic before transferring to the West End. It made its U.S. debut at Off-Broadway’s Public Theater last year. The show is also set to play Canada’s Princess of Wales Theatre in September beginning September 28. A West End return engagement will follo at London's Gielgud Theatre.
