    ‘Startlingly original... Enthrallingly good music’ (Varsity 2022). Experience Ibsen and Grieg like never before. In this lively and original fusion of music, drama, comedy, surrealism, and dance, Ibsen's groundbreaking classic is reimagined by an ensemble of actor-musicians into a unique piece of gig theatre, accompanied by original jazz versions of songs from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite. This energetic, creative, fun, and poignant adaptation distils the "unstageable" epic story about identity, love and regret – which spans an entire lifetime and half the known world – into an hour of challenging, exciting, and jazzy entertainment.
