PREVIEW Ghosts at Manchester’s Home Theatre

Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts will be performing at Home Theatre in Manchester from November 18 – December 3.

Niamh Cusack will be playing the role of widow Helen Alving and the cast includes Jamie Ballard, Ken Nwosu, Norah Lopez Holden and William Travis.

This is a new version of the play by David Watson and directed by Polly Findlay.

Helen Alving spent many years creating the illusion that her marriage to Captain Alving was happy, but this was far from the truth.

Helen despairingly tries to exorcise the past in this haunting story of deceptions and family secrets and when her son Oswald returns home, the past continues to plague the family and the ghosts remain.

One of the lines from the play is: “I’m haunted by ghosts, you see.  And I think I’ll never be free of them”.
