Classical Theatre Company presents the Henrik Ibsen classic that was once frequently banned or censored because of its scathing criticism of 19th century morality. Ghosts tackles such powerful subjects as incest, infidelity and euthanasia. The play follows a day in the life of the widow Helene Alving as she prepares to dedicate an orphanage in the memory of her late husband. But in the process she reveals to her spiritual advisor, Pastor Manders, that the deceased Captain Alving was a vile and lecherous man. The play revolves around Mrs. Alving's afflicted son Osvald and his unhealthy obsession with Regina, their maid. It is literally the "sins of the father" made manifest. Meanwhile Helene and the pastor, strive to save her son's soul and his body before he is too far-gone.
Performances on Oct. 9 and Oct. 17 feature a post-show discussion between the actors and the audience.
