PEER GYNT is a bad boy with big dreams and a lust for life. And
women. Banished for seducing a bride on her wedding day, he wanders
the world from Arabia to America in search of love, fame and
fortune. After a lifetime of exotic encounters and epic adventures,
real or imagined, he makes his way home, to confront his past.
Wunderkind Kiwi playwright and recipient of an ATC Patrons
Writers' Award, Eli Kent features as a central character alongside
the charismatic anti-hero for all the thrills and spills of his
astonishing life quest.
Ibsen's critique of self-obsession is given a new edge of
relevance in this age of social media, where it's perfectly
acceptable to be obsessed with yourself.
Bold, raucous and irreverent, Peer Gynt [recycled] will open in
March 2017 as our contribution to Auckland Arts Festival.
