Peer Gynt is about the quintessential comic hero, spinning tall tales and charming ladies as he makes his way through a series of outrageous, perilous adventures. Somehow, he always comes through and skips merrily on his way, no matter how bad the odds are. But is that enough? While Peer is an irresponsible rogue who always manages to escape consequences, he is nonetheless on a quest in search of the Self, just one step ahead of the Button Moulder who intends to melt down his soul.

“Fantastic dreams are waste of breath
When life evaporates, and death
Confronts us where the four roads cross.
Yes, Buttonmoulder. Life is loss.”
— Young Peer Gynt
