For twenty-nine years, since her mother and two aunts arranged for her to marry the wealthy, charming Captain Alving, Helen has kept a dark secret -- the reality of her late husband’s deviant excesses and his disease. Now, with her son Osvald finally home to stay after many years abroad, a triumphant new life begins. The past will be buried forever.
But her spiritual liberation is about to meet a catastrophic fate in one of the great plays of the world stage by one of its greatest dramatists, Henrik Ibsen. This English language adaptation of “Ghosts” will prove as haunting for modern audiences as its title.
Doug Kaback adapts and directs. He has previously directed shows for the Old Globe, Fountain Theatre, Cornerstone Theatre, Los Angeles Theatre Center, East West Players, Odyssey Theatre and other venues. He has written over forty plays, and is a Professor at Cal State Northridge.
