Peer Gynt sweeps around the world in a fruitless search for power and glory - outwitting wedding guests, trolls and a belly dancing con-woman who are all intent on bringing him down.

Eventually this comic rogue is redeemed by the love of a good woman.

Driven by a timeless hunger for fame and wealth, Peer remains a man on a desperate quest for his inner-self. His fantastical journey is wholly updated by this exuberant show rich in contemporary imagery, live music and original poetry.

When Irina Brook, daughter of Peter Brook, first read this last of Ibsen's verse dramas as a young actress living in New York in the 1980s, she imagined Ibsen's eponymous hero as the boisterous rock star. Years later, her vision has been vividly realised in an adaptation featuring creative contributions from Iggy Pop as well as new writing from Pulitzer Prize-winning Sam Shepard.
