About this show

Peer Gynt sweeps around the world in a fruitless search for power and glory - outwitting wedding guests, trolls and a belly dancing con-woman who are all intent on bringing him down. Eventually this comic rogue is redeemed by the love of a good woman. The last of Ibsen's verse dramas.

Acclaimed Swiss director Barbara Frey reimagines Ibsen's epic European myth for the 21st century. This radical adaptation explores the achingly human questions we all grapple with today.
