Preview Night
Thurs 29 October 2009

Octagon Theatre Bolton presents

by Henrik Ibsen
Director: David Thacker
Designer: Patrick Connellan

Written in 1881, Ghosts was deliberately sensational. Ibsen's contemporaries regarded it as shockingly indecent. An English critic described it as ‘a dirty deed done in public’

“Skeletons are not so much rattled as violently forced out”
The Independent

“What is shocking is its perpetual relevance to the present”
The Guardian

Oswald is a young artist who has come back home after a long period abroad. His mother is an educated, Victorian woman, whose radical views are in sharp contrast to the prevailing attitudes in this conservative, northern town. Oswald’s return and the disturbing news he brings leads to a chain of events that reveals the underlying corruption of this apparently respectable society and leads to a shocking climax. The power and depth of this play had a profound influence on Arthur Miller’s development as a playwright. Ghosts is gripping, deeply moving and astonishingly modern.
