Henrik Ibsen, playwright; Jason King Jones, director. Ibsen’s epic drama explores an anti-hero’s odyssey to define himself in the modern world. A 19th century blend of allegory, psychodrama and fairy tale is brought into the 21st century through this new 90-minute adaptation, conceived and directed by MFA Directing candidate Jason King Jones. Ibsen’s definitive work of poetic genius, Peer Gynt boldly investigates the dangers of absolute self-fulfillment, the struggles of sacrifice, and the endless pursuit to find meaning in an uncertain world.
