Dates 02 August - 03 August 2014

The West End Theatre Series is delighted to present Richard Eyre’s spell-binding adaptation (Independent) of GHOSTS by Henrik Ibsen.

Helene Alving (Lesley Manville) has spent her life suspended in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but outwardly charming husband. She is determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald (Jack Lowden), the truth about his father. But on his return from his life as a painter in France, Oswald reveals how he has already inherited the legacy of Alving’s dissolute life.

Nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best Revival, GHOSTS transferred to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios following a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Giving a magnificent performance (Guardian), Lesley Manville (Grief, Another Year) leads the cast in Richard Eyre’s compellingly vibrant (Evening Standard) adaptation of Ibsen’s masterpiece.

The West End Theatre Series is captured in High Definition by Digital Theatre and distributed by CinemaLive.
