Peer Gynt

by Henrik Ibsen

Directed John Johnston & Kalob Martinez

April 10 through 28, 2019 

Following the success of its three previous forays into the Norwegian master, Henrik Ibsen’s, plays – 2010’s Ghosts, 2016’s A Doll’s House, and 2018’s An Enemy of the People – Classical Theatre Company will again produce of the great playwright’s works: Peer Gynt. Ibsen, known for his intense early dramas, dives right into the heart of what it is to be Norwegian in this folkloric Scandinavian odyssey. To be co-directed by CTC Executive Artistic Director John Johnston and former CTC Artistic Associate Kalob Martinez, Peer Gynt will be the company’s first venture into incorporating a strong presence of puppetry into a production.

This tale follows Peer Gynt as he traverses from Norway to North Africa throughout the decades of his life. The play uses powerful romantic notions while still sowing the roots of modernism for which Ibsen was to become so well known.
