Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted and directed by Richard Eyre
Uncouth family relations. Malicious infections. Upended Victorian mores. Considered shockingly indecent when it premiered in 1882, Ghosts is given chilling new life in this production, which originated at the Almeida Theatre and was transferred to the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions. Lesley Manville (Grief, National Theatre; Mike Leigh films, including Another Year and Topsy-Turvy) gives an Olivier Award-winning performance leading the cast in director Richard Eyre’s (The Crucible, Broadway; The Invention of Love, National Theatre; Carmen and Le Nozze di Figaro, Metropolitan Opera) multi-award-winning adaptation of Ibsen’s masterpiece.
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.
