Further InformationVenue: Studio 404 of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Center, located at 72 E. 11th St., in Chicago’s South Loop. 9 performances. Ginsberg has reset the story’s action from rural Norway to the town of Stoughton, Wisconsin, and updated the action to 1987-2017. “My idea was to set [the story] in one of the small towns on the Wisconsin/Illinois border that still has a large population whose roots are in Norway. Whose landscape seems to me the landscape of the farming community . . . in Scandinavia where Peer fantasizes and dreams. . . . A land of huge roughhewn wooden trolls standing outside of diners and gas-stations. The kitsch of Norwegian gingerbread architecture that is at once stultifying and precious,” Ginsberg says.
