Description
Ghosts is Ibsen's haunting study of the lingering poison in a marriage based on a lie. Osvald Alving has returned from Paris to his mother's home, carrying with him a dreadful secret. His mother's delight at having him home soon turns to horror and grief.

In Mrs Alving and her son's distrust of conventional religion and mores and Oswald's anguish with life, Ibsen created a thoroughly modern and provocative work. It created widespread outrage and shock when first produced in 1881. It is presented by the Gate Theatre, London, in a new version by Amelia Bullmore, directed by the Anna Mackmin, in January and February 2007.
