By Henrik Ibsen
A Family Drama in Three Acts
A New Translation by Lanford Wilson
Directed by Ken Marini
Author of A Doll’s House, Henrik Ibsen not only tackled scandals, he created them. Ghosts’ scathing commentary on 19th-century morality sparked a fury when it was first produced. In this translation by American icon Lanford Wilson (Burn This), Ibsen’s tale of mothers and sons, moral hypocrisy, and the dangers of secrets passed from one generation to the next remains as incendiary as ever. Approximate run time is 2 hours, 15 minutes with one 15-minute intermission. This show is best enjoyed by ages 14 and up.
Scoop on Sunday: History, Context, and Gossip People’s Light continues its program called Scoop on Sundays: History, Context, and Gossip, a lively discussion before every Sunday 7 pm performance. Resident Dramaturg Gina Pisasale will host an artist from the production and get the inside scoop about such things as the rehearsal and production process, design choices, and the world of the play. The program begins at 5:30 in The Farmhouse Bistro on January 19, January 26 and February 9. Cost of $15 includes light fare. Call the Box Office at 610.644.3500.
