 Location:England

The Ibsen Stage Company's production of ‘Peer Gynt’ by Henrik Ibsen, adapted, translated and directed by Norwegian Terje Tveit, is on at the Pleasance Theatre Studio in London in January and February.

Set in the early 1930’s, a time of uncertainty and change, Ibsen Stage Company re-tells the story of 'Peer Gynt' in a world of gangsters, jazz clubs, forgery, murder, seduction and beautiful women. This is Ibsens thought-provoking fable of man’s struggle to find his own true identity as you have never seen it before!

'Peer Gynt' follows Ibsen Stage Company’s production of 'A Doll’s House', which performed at the National Theatre in Oslo as part of the 2004 Ibsen Festival and the touring production of 'Little Eyolf', which opened Ibsen Year 2006 at the Riverside Studios, London.


“Pacy proof that Ibsen’s understanding of people, and the desperate things they do in the search for fulfilment, can outshine the gloom” 
Little Eyolf / Time Out

What is remarkable is the fluid choreography that Tveit has brought to the play”
Little Eyolf / Times Literary Supplement

“Critic’s Choice – Five Best Productions Nationwide”
Pillars of Society / The Independent

“You can feel the zig-zags of electricity on stage”
A Doll’s House / Metro
