About Peter Gynt

David Hare’s adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, now titled Peter Gynt transforms a play over 150 years old into the present day. In a story of transformation and romance, the production blends comedic and tragic moments together as Gynt’s ideas and values are tested. Ibsen’s play was last performed at the National in 2000, however this adaptation revives the story with a contemporary feel.
