Show & Venue Information

The National Theatre produces shows at the cutting edge of British theatre, with Peter Gynt continuing the trend. David Hare’s adaptation of a Henrik Ibsen classic sees the 19th century play brought to the modern day, with a contemporary feel. David Hare and Jonathan Kent present this epic story of transformation, where home really is where the heart is. So, if you’re looking to see a classic play told in a brand new format, you’ll want to see Peter Gynt.

Peter Gynt is an ordinary man, with a remarkable journey. As he sets his heart on wedding a special individual by stealing a bride from a local wedding, he sets off on a journey around the world. Join Gynt in Florida, Egypt and a mountain inhabited by trolls as his life is constantly changing.

Peter Gynt is not the only play written by Henrik Ibsen to be performed in London. Hayley Atwell and Tom Burke currently star in Rosmersholm at the Duke of York’s, with A Doll’s House set to be performed at the Lyric Hammersmith later this year. But, this fresh adaptation of an Ibsen classic is guaranteed to dazzle audiences at the National, so you’ll want to book your tickets for Peter Gynt.
