Peter GyntJames McArdle, star of Platonov and Angels in America, takes the title role in David Hare epic new production of Peter Gynt, styled after Henrik Ibsen's 1867 poetic fantasy Peer Gynt. While Ibsen's version follows the journey of its hero from his mountain home to other lands in a story which spans decades, Hare's reworking takes the main character and, "runs away with him into the 21st century". Firmly placed in the present day, he's "propelled into a free-wheeling world of music, dance, poetry, weddings, coronations, trolls and two-headed children". After playing at the National's Olivier Theatre from July, Peter Gynt, a co-production with Edinburgh International Festival and directed by Jonathan Kent, transfers to Edinburgh for the festival in August 2019.
