Born into an international theatre family, Irina Brook first read Peer Gynt as a young actress living in 1980s New York. In a relationship at the time with Iggy Pop, she imagined Ibsen's eponymous hero as the boisterous rock star. Years later, her vision has been vividly realised in an adaptation featuring creative contributions from the legendary musician as well as new writing from Pulitzer Prize-winning Sam Shepard.
Driven by a timeless hunger for fame and wealth, 'PG' remains a man on a desperate quest for his inner-self. His fantastical journey is wholly updated by this exuberant show rich in contemporary imagery, live music and original poetry.
