Helen Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built to the memory of her late husband, determined to keep his proud legacy alive despite their secretly unhappy marriage . Slowly the hidden secrets of the family are revealed, leading to devastating consequences. Ibsen’s Ghosts attracted controversy at its premiere for its scathing commentary on nineteenth century societal norms. It deals with contentious subjects such as religion, incest and euthanasia and, most shockingly at the time, venereal disease. But at it's heart it is a play about people and the personal ghosts they live with. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd
