Dear Customer,

The West End Theatre Series is delighted to present its third title, Richard Eyre’s "spell-binding" adaptation (Independent) of Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen.
 
Nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best Revival, Ghosts transferred to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios following a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre. 
 
Helene Alving (Lesley Manville) has spent her life suspended in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but outwardly charming husband. She is determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald (Jack Lowden), the truth about his father. But on his return from his life as a painter in France, Oswald reveals how he has already inherited the legacy of Alving’s dissolute life.
 
Winner of Best Director for Richard Eyre at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards and Best Actress for Lesley Manville at the Critic’s Circle Awards, this is a "powerfully moving" (Metro) production of Ibsen’s masterpiece.
 
Giving a "magnificent performance" (Guardian), Lesley Manville (Grief, Another Year) leads the cast in Richard Eyre’s "compellingly vibrant" (Evening Standard) adaptation.

★★★★★

"Lesley Manville gives the performance of her life."

Sunday Telegraph
★★★★★

"A masterpiece. Richard Eyre's new version has glories too many to list."

The Times

The universally praised cast of Ghosts also includes Adam Kotz, Jack Lowden, Brian McCardie and Charlene McKenna.

The Almeida Theatre production of Ghosts was captured live in High Definition by Digital Theatre at Trafalgar Studios during the production’s strictly limited West End season. The West End Theatre Series is captured by Digital Theatre and distributed by CinemaLive

Ghosts is the third production to be distributed as part of the West End Theatre Series and follows Maria Friedman's acclaimed revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Merrily We Roll Along and Noël Coward's Private Lives starring Toby Stephens and Anna Chancellor. Both have been recognised with a combined eleven Olivier Award nominations.
