Description: 
Mrs. Helene Alving, a modern, enlightened woman, has done everything possible to free herself and her son from the poisonous influence of her departed husband and the stranglehold of traditional social mores. However, on the day in which she prepares to cleanse herself of his memory once and for all, a sudden eruption of dark secrets, perverse truths and deadly legacies threatens to tear her world apart. From some ghosts of the past, she finds, one can never be free. Ghosts is one of the most controversial plays in theater history, provoking uproar and heated debate from the time of its original production in 1881 to the present. It features five incredible characters ­­ purportedly some of the best roles in the modern theater. A nightmarish yet darkly comic play, Ghosts leaves no sordid stone unturned as it explores those intangible fears and inevitabilities which dog our every move as we live our lives.
