Join us at the National Theatre on London's South Bank for a radical new version of Ibsen's Peer Gynt.
An ordinary man. A remarkable journey.
Peter Gynt has always set his heart on being special, on being a unique individual, on being unlike anyone else. When he steals the bride from a local wedding, he sets off on a lifetime journey which will take him to Florida, to Egypt, to a mountain of trolls, and finally, only when death approaches, back to his home in Scotland.
In this radical new version, David Hare kidnaps Ibsen’s most famous hero and runs away with him into the 21st century. James McArdle takes the title role in this epic story of transformation, following his acclaimed performances in Platonov and Angels in America. He is reunited with David Hare and Jonathan Kent, the partnership behind the triumphant Young Chekhov at Chichester Festival Theatre and the National Theatre.
Let's meet before the play at the National Theatre's ground floor 'Bar and Kitchen' (on the left after entrance past the bookshop) from 5:30pm. You do not have to arrive at 5:30pm but some of us will be there early to chat, eat and have a drink before the play. Please arrive by 6:45 pm at the latest to collect your ticket directly from me.
Tickets are £31 (this includes a £3 donation to Central London Humanists). Reservations are open until April 14.
