A new version of Peer Gynt

In 2009 Ibsen Stage Company presents a rehearsed reading of its brand new version of Henrik Ibsen’s classic Peer Gynt - in verse. This is part of the company's preparations for its forthcoming production of Peer Gynt Recharged at the Riverside Studios three years later.

Set in the 1920’s American underworld, Ibsen Stage Company re-tells the story of Peer Gynt in a world of gangsters, jazz clubs, forgery, murder, seduction and beautiful women. The new version has now become a thought-provoking fable that departs from the company's previous productions of Ibsen's play.

The reading is introduced by the Minister Councillor for Press, Information & Culture, Stein Iversen, from the Royal Norwegian Embassy, UK.
