Peer Gynt

By Henrik Ibsen (in a new version by Arthur Riordan with live music by Tarab)



Peer Gynt, the boy who never grew up, the escapologist extraordinaire. From the author of Improbable Frequency comes a new take on Ibsen’s epic study of delusion, self-evasion and wild imaginings. Caught between his angel and his demon, haunted by the women he loved, lost and betrayed, catapulted through a life built on fantasy, he is finally forced to face himself. Fast, funny, told by a classic Rough Magic cast with the surreal humour that is the company’s trademark, with a spectacular visual interpretation and live music from the brilliant ensemble Tarab, this is truly a story for our times.
