About the Show/Event
Information for Peter Gynt at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh (Play). Peter Gynt has always set his heart on being special, on being a unique individual, on being unlike anyone else. When he steals the bride from a local wedding, he sets off on a lifetime journey which will take him to Florida, to Egypt, to a mountain of trolls, and finally, only when death approaches, back to his home in Scotland. In this radical new version, David Hare kidnaps Ibsen's most famous hero and runs away with him into the 21st century. Edinburgh International Festival
