Peer Gynt

by National Theatre of Scotland and Dundee Rep Ensemble
Genre(s): Classic

About: Peer Gynt

This raucous and radical interpretation of Ibsenís classic play takes the audience on a truly wild theatrical journey. An exhilarating tale of a life lived on the edge, this production promises a mix of trolls, madmen, dancing girls and live music.

Peer Gynt is a dreamer, a liar and a serial womaniser. Cast out from his home town, Peer embarks on a thrilling and astonishing adventure in search of fame and fortune that takes him from Norway to Africa and eventually back home again.

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