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.
Following a sold out run at the Almeida Theatre, the critically acclaimed Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen transfers to the Trafalgar Studios for a strictly limited season.
Giving a 'magnificent performance' (The Guardian), Lesley Manville leads the cast in Richard Eyre's 'spellbinding' adaptation (Independent) of Ibsen's masterpiece. This fast-paced production of Ghosts is both 'powerfully moving' (Metro) and 'compellingly vibrant' (Evening Standard).
