Peer Gynt

Peer Gynt

Sue Suchyta August 2001

Henry Ford Community College's theatre program has challenged its student actors with its current production of Henrik Ibsen's "Peer Gynt." The ambitious undertaking showcases some fine acting and production talent, with spectacular staging, lighting and special effects. It is, however, a four hour production. While it is important for students to challenge themselves with classic works, four hour marathons are rough on audiences. At last Sunday's matinee, there were more people onstage than in the audience, and almost a third of the house left at intermission.
