Ghosts $19.96 ex GST
$21.96 inc GST
Helene Alving has spent her life suspended in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but outwardly charming husband. She is determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald, the truth about his father. But on his return from his life as a painter in France, Oswald reveals how he has already inherited the legacy of Alving’s dissolute life.

Regarded as one of the greatest plays by master dramatist Henrik Ibsen, Ghosts is a powerful, tragic family drama whose impact is just as strong over a century after it was written. A stinging rebuke to the morality of its time, the play’s core themes of parental guilt, family strife and the struggle to escape mistakes of the past resonate just as strongly today.
Cast : 3M; 2F
