Ghosts

DVD - 2009
Rate this:
The publication of Ghosts in 1881 caused an uproar and almost ruined Ibsen. It was banned across Europe and sales of his other plays plummeted. Its theme of moral degredation - out-of-wedlock children, venereal disease, incest, infidelity and euthanasia - proved too shocking.The play remains shocking even for modern-day audiences. Captain Alving was a respected man in his community, and on the tenth anniversary of his death, Mrs Alving is preparing for the opening of an orphanage in his honour. This effort, however, is really an attempt by Mrs Alving to mask her hidden disgust with Captain Alving who in reality was a cheating, immoral philanderer who bequeathed a deadly legacy to his son Oswald.
