Peer Gynt  

Peer Gynt $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
Peer Gynt is a dreamer, a liar and a serial womaniser. Cast out from his hometown, Peer embarks on a wild and astonishing journey in search of fame and fortune that takes him from Norway to Africa and eventually back home again. An exhilarating tale of a life lived on the edge.

This radical new co-production promises a mix of trolls, madmen, dancing girls and live music. Under the direction of Dominic Hill in a colourful new version from the writer of the Rep’s recent hit show Monkey, Peer Gynt finally brings together two of Scotland’s most acclaimed theatre companies.

Be prepared for a theatrical roller-coaster ride through one of the greatest works of modern literature.

A brilliant reinvention that's both irreverent and profound . -  The Herald, Glasgow
