Is the search for the Self for total nobodies?

Watch closely as Peter Gnit, a funny-enough but so-so specimen of humanity, makes a lifetime of bad decisions, on the search for his True Self, which is disintegrating while he searches. A rollicking and very cautionary tale about, among other things, how the opposite of love is laziness.

Gnit is a faithful, unfaithful, and wilfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, a 19th century Norwegian play which is famous for all the wrong reasons, written by Will Eno, who has never been to Norway.

Hailed by the New York Times as ‘a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation,’ WILL ENO has emerged as a vital force in American theatre. Eno is the recipient of a Residency 5 Fellowship at the Signature Theatre where his play Title and Deed premiered in May 2012. The Realistic Joneses had its world premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre in April 2012. His play Middletown was a winner of the Horton Foote Prize and was produced at the Vineyard Theatre in New York and Steppenwolf in Chicago. His play Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and has been translated into many Romance languages and several Slavic ones. Eno lives in Brooklyn.
