About Ghosts Tickets

Ghosts description

For the first time ever in the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, experience the work of Henrik Ibsen, one of the most influential dramatists of all time, with his scandalous Ghosts, a searing exploration of family secrets and forbidden desire.

Plagued by the ugly truth of her late husband’s legacy, Helene vows to erase the past and start again.

Ignorant to the reality of his father’s character, Osvald, her son, returns home to face an uncertain future. But when the ember of an illicit romance stands to ruin Helene’s plans to play happy family, she is forced to make a decision that threatens to engulf what’s left of her – and her son’s – life completely.

Nearly 150 years after causing a furore when it premiered with its depiction of incest, infection and euthanasia, Director Joe Hill-Gibbins (The Marriage of Figaro, ENO; The Tragedy of King Richard The Second, Almeida), in his Globe debut, brings a new version of the first modern tragedy to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

‘There are ghosts everywhere. There are ghosts here right now.’

Assisted Performances:

Audio-Described - Saturday 16 December matinee

Captioned - Wednesday 6 December evening and Saturday 6 January matinee
