Presented by The Curators
Theatre Performance

Originally banned from performance when first written in 1881, Henrik Ibsen’s ‘Ghosts’ is set to intrigue and electrify Brisbane when it returns to the stage after a 30-year hiatus. Opening Saturday, 20 July 2019, at The Curators Vintage Pop Up Theatre in Red Hill, acclaimed director Michael Beh has adapted this new production of Ibsen’s classic, so it remains a relevant, scorching view of the destructive nature of secrets and the social codes that bind them.

The production brings together a cast of talented Brisbane actors—Lisa Hickey, Tom Coyle and Patrick Shearer feature—alongside Warwick Comber and Lauren Roche.

Helene Alving has been haunted by a life of deception. When Pastor Manders comes to discuss the business of building an orphanage to honour the memory of her late husband, the lies begin to unravel. With the return of her beloved son, Oswald, from years of exile in Paris, Helene is determined to liberate them both from the taboos of their dark past.  But will exorcising the memory of her famous, debauched husband lead to salvation? In one of the greatest female roles in the western drama, Helene Alving rides into battle like a Valkyrie but is also besieged by her own vulnerabilities.

Ibsen’s Ghosts shatters belief systems, unleashing a war on complicity, sexism and morality. The New York Times says, ‘Ghosts’ remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb”.
