PEER GYNT (July 2019)
''No man is ever, truly, free.'
Our re-imagination of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt stripped back the story to its bare bones. Retaining the elements that make Ibsen's epic so loveable, we introduced new elements also.
We transformed the show into a psychodrama, showing Peer's Odyssean tale to be one of self-discovery.
With an original score loosely based on Grieg's incidental music, performed by an eclectic gang of musicians, we tipped our hat to the canonical whilst revelling in the present.
Written and Directed by Ben Jenkins and Jonathan R. Parsonage.
