The wild, globe-trotting adventurer Peer Gynt barrels across the stage in the Chicago premiere of Robert Bly’s high-energy translation of this seldom-performed Ibsen classic. In this adaptation, unencumbered by morals or a sense of responsibility, Peer’s mythic journey is envisioned as that of America itself, from scrappy trickster to imperial power and beyond. The rustic settings and live music reminiscent of 19th and 20th Century Americana accompany Peer on a 150 year whirlwind tour of the American psyche.
