‘Peer Gynt’ at Barbican

 Date:30/04/2009 - 16/05/2009
 Type:Culture, Performing Arts
 Location:England, London

A production of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece ‘Peer Gynt’ by the National Theatre of Scotland and Dundee Rep Ensemble, described as a theatrical roller-coaster ride, will now run at London’s Barbican.

This raucous and radical interpretation of Ibsen’s 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.
