Michaelmas Week 7
"Out there, where the sky shines, humans say: 'To thyself be true'. In here, trolls say: 'Be true to yourself - ish.'"
Caught in a place between reality and fantasy, Peer Gynt is searching for his identity- what is that? Who is he? What can he trust to tell him? Peer begins his quest through a landscape of time, place and mind. At times tragic, comic and fantastic, Ibsen fashions a world that is other to our own yet inextricably connected, a Borderland between here and now and other and elsewhere. Are we alone here? This imaginative and lively production creates the energy, bawdiness and innovation of Kenneth McLeish's National Theatre translation.
