The Rogue Theatre


Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen

Directed by David Morden

November 4 - 28, 2010


Mrs. Alving's son has returned from Paris with a troubling fatigue just as she is finishing the construction of an orphanage named in honor of her late husband. As the moment approaches to dedicate the children's home, secrets old and new are revealed and the family's foundations crumble away--a powerful, taut drama of legacy, love and catastrophe.

"One of the most striking things about Ghosts," observes director David Morden, "is its timeliness...and timelessness.  It's a story about the struggle to rid oneself of old beliefs and outmoded ideas.  This play looks at how much courage and conviction it takes to move forward into the future without carrying baggage from the past.  In a time of social and political divisiveness, it's remarkable that a play written in 1881 still speaks to us about our lives in the 21st century.  More than that, though, it's just a great story full of startling revelations, raw emotions and brutal honesty about what it means to be a human being in the modern world."

After a romantic cruise around the world, the Lunns and the Junos are reunited to find that their spouses have found new lovers--each other's. Upon discovery, the two couples launch into a debate over society's notions of fidelity, the dangers of moral extremism, and love.   Written in 1912 by an author who was way ahead of his time, this short play sparkles with the delicious wit and repartee of George Bernard Shaw at his most playful.
