The whole country must be full of ghosts, the whole world. And we live in constant fear of them. All of us.

I'm haunted by ghosts, you see. And I think I'll never be free of them. Helen Alving spent years creating the illusion of a happy marriage to a successful, charming man.

Long after his death, she is still trapped by the emotional after-effects of the truth - that he was a serial adulterer and a reckless alcoholic. Stifled by obligations and expectations, Helen resolves to exorcise the ghosts of the past and free herself from the regrets that haunt her.

Some legacies are impossible to escape. Some ghosts can never be laid to rest. David Watson's adaptation of Ibsen's Ghosts opened at the Home Theatre, Manchester, in November 2016.
