About this show

Written by Henrik Ibsen in 1867, more than a decade before A Doll's House and Hedda Gabler, Peer Gynt was considered one of the most innovative plays in western European dramatic literature -- so innovative, in fact, that the playwright himself called it unstageable. Schweizer's thrilling adaptation of Ibsen's sweeping epic is performed by just five performers playing forty characters on a stage full of surprises. Audiences will be taken on a wild and surreal adventure, in which the title character dreams, swindles and charms his way through life in an exhilarating quest for fame and fortune.
