About GINT

GINT is Linney's retelling of Henrik Ibsen's poetic drama, Peer Gynt, now set in Appalachia. Pete Gint, a ragged young man in the Appalachian Mountains in 1917 is determined to become "something great grand and glorious," but he's not sure just what that is.

"GINT" is a celebration and re-creation of Peer Gynt?the play is both utterly faithful to its original and a joy in itself." -The Journal of The Ibsen Society of America.

"The play has speed and humor. Romulus Linney has been loyal, almost reverent, to Ibsen's text." -Klassekampen (Norway).

"Behold a small miracle!?This version of the story can clearly and dramatically involve today's audience, perhaps even more so than Peer Gynt." -Shepherd Express (Milwaukee).
