Ghosts by Sell A Door Theatre - Greenwich Theatre
Sell A Door Theatre Company presents Ghosts, by Henrik Ibsen, a new adaptation by Phillip Rowntree, Anna Fox and Alfred Enoch, at the Greenwich Theatre, a 400-seat venue in south London, from 29 April to 5 May 2013.
It is directed by Phillip Rowntree and Anna Fox.
First staged in 1882, this updated adaptation brings Ibsen’s scathing commentary of morality into the 1920s aristocracy. Helen Alving is dedicating an orphanage to the memory of her late husband Captain Alving. She is desperate to conceal his philandering past, and to protect their only son, Oswald, from his father’s legacy. But as Oswald’s nature begins to feel all too familiar, any hope of success is reduced to ashes.
