Ghosts, a play by Henrik Ibsen from 1881, is a painful indictment of the bourgeois morality behind ‘keeping up appearances’. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Helene Alving has hidden behind this facade her entire life. After the death of her adulterous husband, she hopes to leave the past behind only for it to be reawakened when her son Oswald returns from Paris and falls in love with the servant girl Renate, an illegitimate child of his own father. Oswald also carries with him an evil legacy of his father.
