THERE are unwanted revelations in Ibsen classic Ghosts at Leamington’s Loft Theatre.
Mrs Alving, a wealthy widow, lives on her remote estate in company with her companion/servant Regina. Her husband, generally recognised as a local benefactor and pillar of the community, died ten years ago and tomorrow she will dedicate an orphanage in his honour.
She is overjoyed that her son Oswald has returned home after years living as an artist in Paris and pleased to welcome her old friend and priest Pastor Manders.
But their arrival opens the door to unwanted revelations, to long-held family secrets being revealed, and to the sins of the father truly being visited upon the son.
Robert Lowe makes his directorial debut while also playing the self-righteous Pastor Manders.
Robert is joined on stage by Loft regulars Julie Godfrey (Mrs Alving), Jeremy Heynes (Engstrand) and Leigh Walker (Regina Engstrand), while Janeks Babidorics makes his Loft debut taking on the role of Oswald, Mrs Alving’s artist son.
Ghosts runs from March 28 to April 7.
