At the centre of the narrative is Helene Alving, a widow, wanting to escape the ghosts of her earlier life but as the drama unfolds she learns that present consequences are brought about by past actions. This award-winning adaptation is by former National Theatre Director Richard Eyre.
Director Peter Andrews comments:
“This play shocked 19th-century audiences because of its comment on religion, incest, and inherited disease but this contemporary production gives it enormous freshness and power”.
