A brand new adaptation by award-winning playwright Colin Teevan
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 exhiliarating tale of a life lived on the edge.
Ibsen's classic verse play is given a radical reworking for the modern stage by Colin Teevan, one of our most vibrant and imaginative playwrights.
This version of Peer Gynt opened at Dundee Rep in September 2007 in a production by the National Theatre of Scotland.
Ibsen was a playwright and poet. He worked at theatres in Bergen and Kristiania. He later went into voluntary exile after his theatre went bankrupt. He suffered a stroke in 1900 which ended his literary career.
