Reviews For Ghosts At Trafalgar Studios

Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen is now playing at Trafalgar Studios for a strictly limited season.

Helene Alving 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, 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. Giving a ‘magnificent performance’ (The Guardian), Lesley Manville (Grief, Another Year) leads the cast in Richard Eyre’s ‘stunning’ adaptation (Times) of Ibsen’s masterpiece. This fast-paced production of Ghosts is both ‘powerfully moving’ (Metro) and ‘compellingly vibrant’ (Evening Standard).

Now extended until 22 March due to popular demand.

"Ghosts is more than 130 years old, but Eyre presents it without straining to make it feel urgently contemporary — and the result is that it does in fact seem powerfully modern... this is still absorbingly direct and resonant theatre."

-Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

The Times
★★★★★
‘Retains the intensity, wit and concision that makes it such a supers reading of Ibsen’s drama’
‘It’s stunning acting in a compelling, finally heartbreaking evening’
