New theatre appearance added 29 May 2009

After the run of All My Sons George will also be starring in the next Octagon production, Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen, running from 29 October 2009 to 21 November 2009.

Written in 1881 and first staged in 1882 Ghosts is in the tradition of Ibsen’s work, a scathing commentary on the morality of the time, addressing a subject that his public deemed indecent and shocking.

This production is set in Lancashire in the late 19th Century.

As with All My Sons, Ghosts is again directed by David Thacker in his new role as Artistic Director of the Octagon Theatre.
