Ibsen’s skeletons in the cupboard

Henrick Ibsen’s play Ghosts sent shock waves through Victorian high society when it dared to hold up a shattered mirror to conventional ideas of sex, a woman’s place and the one-way traffic which saw men hold cock-sure-sway over society. Ghosts deals with the undercurrents which eat away unseen at the foundations of so-called civil society (in this case infidelity and syphilis) till one day the foundations collapse and reveal the gaping hole that was always there. John Knowles reviews the new production at The Stables Theatre.
