One of the greatest stories in modern drama. Mrs. Alving has kept the sins of her late husband a secret for her entire life. But soon the ghosts of the past catch up to her when her only son arrives back home with a deadly illness, looking for answers. Trapped within the walls of Victorian society, this gripping and haunting tale tells the story of a woman trying to break through the lies and deceit from her past to save her estranged son.  

"Phenomenal...it has so much resonance for our time." - Philadelphia Inquirer

"Mrs. Helene Alving's Secrets"
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
 "I so identify with a woman who is learning to find her authentic voice, to speak truth at the risk of upsetting people, to stop making herself small to accommodate others...I'm so proud of her, she's so brave." More >

"Ibsen's ghost story still has the power to scare us"
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
 "Assisted suicide. Sexually transmitted disease. Conservative religious hypocrites. No, we're not talking about the Maryland General Assembly, or experiments in Guatemala, or a Bill Maher documentary. We're talking about a play written in Norway in 1881 – Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts. It was scandalous material back then. And it remands disturbing and timely, as Everyman Theatre's new production proves. The final scene brought an audience member seated near me to tears.  More >

"Hazlett reaches an extraordinary level"
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
 "Directed with a knowing touch by Donald Hicken, the staging underlines issues of love, marital fidelity, duty and lifestyle that the playwright addressed or challenged. As much as we may think we're removed from late 19th century mores and expectations, awfully stubborn vestiges remain.  More >

"A Work of Art"
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
 "Ghosts brings Victorian values, beliefs and morality to downtown Baltimore City. With direction by Donald Hicken, Everyman's production pulls us back to a time when extramarital dalliances, if caught, could destroy reputations and crush should, and it skillfully immerses the audience in this restricted world.  More >

"Phenomenal....Not to be missed"
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
 "Wonderfully directed by Donald Hicken, the production of Ghosts at Everyman Theatre is a moving drama set in the distant past, but updated with a new attitude and understanding for modern audiences. More >
