Ghosts  

Adapted by Eamon Flack

Ghosts $20.90 ex GST
$22.99 inc GST

Since the death of her charismatic but abusive husband, Helene Alving has been treading water in a sea of empty days. What keeps her going is a deeply held belief that salvation can only lie in telling her son Osvald the truth about his father. But when Osvald returns after living as an artist in France, he has his own truth to reveal: he is already living the consequences of his father’s life…

Ghosts outraged critics and thrilled audiences when it first premiered in 1882. Over a century later, Henrik Ibsen’s controversial masterpiece, adapted specially for Belvoir by Eamon Flack,  remains just as riveting and radical.
