Ghosts

Synopsis
2007 production based on Henrik Ibsen’s compelling and controversial play containing an array of themes from adultery and incest to euthanasia and illegitimate children. The story follows Mrs Alving (Liz Cassie) who after being widowed ten years earlier is now opening an orphanage in memory of her late husband. As the story progresses Mrs Alving divulges a whole host of secrets about the late Captain Alving that have significant ramifications for the rest of the household, most notably her son Oswald (Robert Cameron) and their maid Regina (Tanya Hossick).
