London International Theatre in association with Ibsen Stage Company presents
Peer Gynt Recharged
Based on the play by Henrik Ibsen
Translated, adapted and directed by Terje Tveit
Produced by Berislav Juraic

Ibsen Stage Company returns to the Riverside Studios for the third time with Peer Gynt Recharged, a brand new version of Ibsen's epic verse drama featuring a cast of fifteen.

Set in a fictitious city of gangsters, with beautiful women and a mysterious singer known as Miss Kabaret Button-Moulder, the story follows Peer Gynt's adventures into a corrupt underworld where loyalty is the only means of survival. Underscored with music and interspersed with song and dance, the show takes us on a journey that explores other worlds without necessarily travelling the globe.

In his new adaptation, director Terje Tveit (Pillars of Society - Independent Critics' Choice, Doll's House - National Theatre, Oslo) replaces the traditional folkloric setting for Peer Gynt with an era that is immediately recognisable worldwide. The show highlights double standards, moral decay and the challenge of living in accordance with one's own principles in times of golden opportunities, uncertainty and fear.
