“An astonishing fable, a surreal parable, a theatrical tour de force” The Phila Inquirer
“EgoPo’s season of Ibsen finishes with a transporting success” Phindie
“EgoPo has transformed a seemingly unstageable play into a vivid pageant about the road to purgatory” Broad Street Review
“Marvelously imaginative and beautiful images”

This show features Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece, Peer Gynt, in a bold adaptation by Obie Award winning playwright and Philadelphia native, Romulus Linney. In this fantastical classic, GINT is reimagined in rural Appalachia for a boisterous evening of Southern folklore filled with banjos, talking hogs, and Beer Cheese. Part Mountain tale, part Norwegian folklore, and unlike any Ibsen you've ever seen.
