Will Eno


Is the search for the Self for total nobodies? Watch closely as Peter Gnit, a funny-enough but so-so specimen of humanity, makes a lifetime of bad decisions, on the search for his True Self, which is disintegrating while he searches.

A rollicking and very cautionary tale about, among other things, how the opposite of love is laziness. Gnit is a faithful, unfaithful, and willfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, a 19th century Norwegian play which is famous for all the wrong reasons, written by Will Eno, who has never been to Norway.

'Mr. Eno has studied the play closely, and the marvel of his new version is how closely it tracks the original while also being, at every moment and unmistakably, a Will Eno play…after climbing the craggy peaks of Ibsen’s daunting play Mr. Eno has brought down from its dizzying heights a surprisingly crowd-pleasing (if still strange) work.' The New York Times
