is the celebrated American playwright Will Eno’s acerbically witty adaptation of the Ibsen classic Peer Gynt
. Eno has reimagined that sprawling, satirical, 19th-century quest tale as a quick-paced contemporary tragicomedy. Peter Gnit is a feckless, well-meaning sloucher who bounces between glib reactions to Experience and ill-considered efforts at finding his True Self, all the while missing the love, joy, sorrow, goodness and authentic experience that are right in front of his nose. Packed with Eno’s signature wordplay, wit, and deflated pretentiousness, Gnit
finds hilarity in calamitous self-deception and profundity in a pratfall life.
