LANESBORO — It could be argued that in staging "When We Dead Awaken" as the final production of its 20-year-run of Ibsen Festivals, the Commonweal Theatre saved the least for last.
"When We Dead Awaken" was the final play written by Henrik Ibsen, and it stands in the shadows of some of his giant works.
Let's say you wanted to stage one of the most creative versions of "Peer Gynt" that can be imagined. Who you gonna call?
Start with Ryan Underbakke and his merry band of young actors, singers and musicians at Rochester Community & Technical College, where just such a production of "Peer Gynt" opened Thursday.
Rochester Community and Technical College announced its presentation of Henrik Ibsen's classical drama "Peer Gynt," throughout the end of April.
The play, directed by Ryan Underbakke in the dynamic theater style, chronicles Peer's journey to discover the meaning of his life. On the way, he encounters exciting and enigmatic characters such as a prophet, a goblin king, a businessman as he makes his way through forests, deserts, shipwrecked oceans, and into his own sanity.
