Ghosts

April 1 - May 1, 2022

Bagley Wright Theater

In this arresting new translation, Henrik Ibsen’s controversial drama resonates with startling contemporary power.

Mrs. Alving welcomes home her beloved son Oswald after many years away. Rebuilding her life after the death of her unfaithful husband, she struggles to keep his debauchery hidden to protect his reputation for the sake of her son. But when Oswald begins a new romance, secrets of all kinds emerge, and Mrs. Alving must decide what course to take to truly be free.
