Ibsen’s tale of mental claustrophobia in which the characters are haunted by ghosts – not of dead people but of dead ideas – is stylised with gothic horror.
The return of the prodigal son unveils ancient secrets and lies. Ibsen’s Gothic tale issues a warning to us all as history threatens to repeat itself. A play that reaches out across generations to haunt a contemporary audience.
"A dedicated cast in a powerful and moving production."
