The Department of Drama and Dance presents Henrik Ibsen’s poetic masterpiece Peer Gynt, directed by Marta Rainer, April 8-17, at the Joan and Donald Schaeffer Black Box Theater. Sweeping adventure, heartbreaking romance, madmen, trolls, and the Devil himself all make an appearance in Peer Gynt, about a lovable rogue who spends his life roaming around the world in an attempt to be somebody, anybody, except himself. Challenging the limits of theatrical convention, Peer Gynt is a feast for the eyes, the ears, and the heart.
Hofstra’s Schaeffer Black Box Theater is located at the New Academic Building on Hofstra’s South Campus. Show times for Peer Gynt are Fridays, April 8 and 15 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, April 9 and 16 at 8 p.m.; Sundays, April 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.; and Thursday, April 14 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10, $8 senior citizen (over 65) or matriculated non-Hofstra student with ID.
