George Bernard Shaw called Ghosts, Henrik Ibsen’s continuing examination of convention, “the most moral play ever written.” Duty to society’s expectations and a father’s sin haunt a family in this compelling drama. Widow Helen Alving sends her son to live in New York, enduring years of reprimand for her arms-length rearing of the boy. When her beloved Oswald returns, indeed his father’s son, Helen again is forced to confront the legacy of outdated ideas she has spent her life protecting. Tony and Emmy award-winning actress Jane Alexander makes her Shakespeare Theatre debut directed by acclaimed stage, television and film director/producer Edwin Sherin, in a new, modern adaptation of Ibsen’s classic.
