Critic Reviews (10)

Time Out London
July 10th, 2019

...for all the bonkers interludes...and McArdle’s brilliance, ‘Peter Gynt’ increasingly feels like a chore, and a smattering of good humour can’t conceal the play’s fundamental sour slogginess.'

The Telegraph (UK)
July 10th, 2019

... it feels as though Hare hasn’t adequately re-purposed it for the 21st century, and, for all the resources Jonathan Kent’s three-hours plus production throws at it, a sense of aimlessness and even amateurishness takes hold.'

London Theatre

It's by no means an easy watch, but this entirely watchable production both surprises and illuminates a play that I've previously thought was impossible to actually enjoy.'

July 9th, 2019

David Hare brings modern madness to Ibsen's epic... Hare updates Ibsen’s 1867 dramatic poem with wit and ingenuity, resulting in a sharp satire on contemporary mores.'

What's On Stage (UK)
July 10th, 2019

Despite running at over three hours...this version is never boring... but it doesn't ever quite resolve the mad veering between fantasy and reality...McArdle [is] the main reason to see the play.'

The Times (UK)

...director Jonathan Kent has lavished no end of care on the production... But you are still faced with a fantastical drama that meanders back and forth around an alarmingly repetitive stock of philosophical ideas...'

The Stage (UK)
July 10th, 2019

While David Hare’s satirical update...contains some witty lines and a magnetic central performance from James McArdle, for the most part it’s tedious and heavy-handed stuff. And long. Very long.'
