Southwark Playhouse Young Company presents
by Henrik Ibsen A version by Frank McGuiness
Peer Gynt: He’s a chancer, a dancer, a wannabe romancer, a liar, a schemer, a good for nothing day-dreamer. You’re going to love him.
Written in 1867, Ibsen’s Peer Gynt is a fantastic voyage through one man’s life – brought screaming into the 21st century by YoCo in a spectacular, promenade production set deep in the tunnels underneath London Bridge Station.
Exploring familiar themes in an unconventional way, the story follows Peer as he walks a tightrope between fantasy and reality, good and evil, and eventually, heaven and hell – but in the end, how will he be judged?
YoCo is a youth-led theatre company for young people aged 16-25. YoCo aims to provide young people with little or no formal dramatic training or acting experience the opportunity to get involved, get some skills, and get on stage.
