"Is the search for the Self for total nobodies? Watch closely as Peter Gnit, a funny-enough but so-so specimen of humanity, makes a lifetime of bad decisions, on the search for his True Self, which is disintegrating while he searches. A rollicking and very cautionary tale about, among other things, how the opposite of love is laziness. Gnit is a faithful, unfaithful, and willfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt, a 19th century Norwegian play which is famous for all the wrong reasons, written by Will Eno, who has never been to Norway."
"Will Eno lives in Greenpoint, New York. He is a Fellow at the Signature Theater in New York, where his play Title and Deed premiered in May 2012. His play The Realistic Joneses had its premiere at the Yale Repertory Theater, in April 2012. Both The Realistic Joneses and Title and Deed were on The New York Times' "Best Plays of 2012" list. His play Middletown was a winner of the Horton Foote Award and was produced at the Vineyard Theater in New York and Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago. His play Thom Pain (based on nothing) ran for a year at the DR2 Theater, was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize, and has been translated into over a dozen languages. He was recently awarded the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation Award. Other work has appeared in Harper's, The Believer, and The Quarterly. "He strikes me as being the real thing, a real playwright. He takes every chance. And Will keeps his voice his own: he has an awareness of the human condition I wish more people his age had." Edward Albee"
