Peer Gynt ()


Would you believe a madcap zany play based on the life of a Norwegian folk hero?  Peer Gynt sallies forth on a series of misadventures that span the globe until, returning home a broken old man, he finds his true love Solveig has loyally awaited his return.  What's not to like about that?

I'm anxious to see a stage version of this one because it is so visual and grandiose, I'm not certain how you could stage it.  An interesting and amusing work.
