Peer du lyver!* (Peer, you're lying!)

Peer du lyver* (Peer, you're lying!) (1997) was a puppetry production by The Norwegian Touring Theatre, based on Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen, in an adaptation for puppets by Svein Sturla Hungnes. The production went on tour the autumn of 1997, with its tour opening September 10 in Skien.

Svein Sturla Hungnes directed it.

The production was part of The Norwegian Touring Theatre's Peer Gynt project of 1997, in which four new adaptations of Peer Gynt went on tour in Norway. The four were Peer Gynt, Peer Pressure, Peer du lyver! and Gjøglernes Peer Gynt* (The Jesters' Peer Gynt).
