TampaRep presents the Southeastern premiere of Gnit!

Will Eno, hailed by the New York Times as “a Samuel Becket for the Jon Stewart generation,” writes plays of depth, filled with off-beat humor and absurd, but real, situations.  In Gnit, he’s created “a faithful, unfaithful, and willfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt.”  In the play, Peter Gnit travels America and the world, looking for himself in all the wrong places and finding trouble and success and more trouble along the way.  Gnit debuted during the Humana Festival at the Actors Theatre of Louisville in 2013.  Critics called it “wickedly funny, relentlessly intelligent,” and noted “Eno’s flair for playing games with language and his offbeat humor, which cuts to the heart as incisively as it tickles the funny bone.”  Gnit follows last season’s production of Eno’s The Realistic Joneses, another wonderful play by this award-winning playwright.
