​by Sell a Door Theatre Company

Adapted by Alfred Enoch from William Archer’s translation

‘Whenever I take up a newspaper, I seem to see ghosts gliding between the lines.’ Helen Alving is trapped in a world where the ‘dead ideas’ preached by Pastor Manders rule outright, and her own family’s insidious legacy threatens scandal. She is desperately trying to conceal her husband’s philandering past by building an orphanage in his name, under the pastor’s guiding hand. But the celebrated return of her estranged son Oswald brings Helen’s ghosts back to haunt her and all hopes of success are reduced to ashes.

Though penned in 1881, it is not hard for us to see the parallels in our own society; the pious leaders of the past replaced with our own custodians of the status quo, and money their new religion.

Alfred Enoch, best known for playing Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter franchise, masterfully adapts Ibsen’s Ghosts for it’s Autumn tour 2013.

Following sell-out tours of Spring Awakening, A Midsummer Nights Dream and Lord of the Flies, Sell a Door Theatre Company conclude their 2013 touring season with this exciting adaptation of one of Henrik Ibsen’s greatest works.
