A family connection has led to the production of a classic play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen at Melville Theatre.
Belvoir St Theatre artistic director Eamon Flack adapted Ibsen’s Ghosts for a 2017 Sydney production – and now his second cousin Thomas Dimmick is directing the show in Perth.
Regarded as a scathing commentary on 19th-century morality, Ghosts is the story of Helene Alving who is about to open an orphanage in her late husband’s name.
Her maid Regine is helping to prepare things, Regine’s carpenter father has been working on the building and Pastor Manders is organising the paperwork.
At the same time, Helene’s son has also come back from Paris for the occasion.
Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts plays at 8pm August 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20 with a 2pm matinee August 14. Tickets are $23, $18 concession – book at www.TAZTix.com.au. Note: the show contains adult themes.
Melville Theatre is at 393A Canning Highway (corner of Stock Road), Palmyra.
