William Travis : Ghosts Press Night

Date - 23 November, 2016, All News Opening Nights Press Nights Theatre

Home Theatre Manchester presents Ghosts which opens to the press this evening starring William Travis as Jacob.

The Olivier Award winning Polly Findlay directs this new production of Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece, Ghosts.

It tells the story of a woman who’s spent years creating the illusion of a happy marriage to a successful, charming man. Long after his death, she is still trapped by the emotional after-effects of the truth – that he was a serial adulterer and a reckless alcoholic.

Stifled by obligations and expectations, she resolves to exorcise the ghosts of the past and free herself from the regrets that haunt her. But when her artist son Osvald returns home, it becomes clear that he has already paid the price for his father’s past.

Some legacies are impossible to escape. Some ghosts can never be laid to rest.
