Peer Gynt archivePeer Gynt sweeps around the world in a fruitless search for power and glory - outwitting wedding guests, trolls and a belly dancing con-woman who are all intent on bringing him down. Eventually this comic rogue is redeemed by the love of a good woman. The last of Ibsen's verse dramas. The critically acclaimed National Theatre of Scotland and Dundee Rep Ensemble co-production of Henrick Ibsen’s Peer Gynt which premiered at Dundee Rep in 2007. This new version of Peer Gynt, written by Colin Teevan, is directed by Dominic Hill whose Ubu the King played during the Young Genius season in bite05. Peer Gynt is a dreamer, liar and serial womaniser. Cast out from his home town, Peer embarks on a wild and astonishing journey in search of fame and fortune. In this anarchic production, Peer becomes a people trafficker and war profiteer. The play reunites Gerry Mulgrew (as the older Peer) and Ann Louise Ross (as his mother) who both starred in Ubu the King. After the Barbican run Peer Gynt tours Scotland.
