Summary
In this radical new version of 'Peer Gynt', David Hare kidnaps Henrik Ibsen's most famous hero and runs away with him into the twenty-first century. Stripped of fretwork and greenery, the play is projected into a freewheeling modern world of music, dance, poetry, weddings, coronations, trolls and two-headed children as Peter steals a bride and embarks on an extraordinary lifetime's journey before returning home, finally, to Scotland. Hare's 'Peter Gynt' posits the same fundamental question the great Norwegian asked in 1867: does a belief in individualism help or hinder us in trying to live purposefully in the present day?
