REVIEWS

“The play is set in a country estate not far from Charleston, SC, where the sins of the past wreak irrevocable havoc on a small family . . . breathtaking performances. . .a haunting, enthralling jaunt into the psyches of a dysfunctional family. Perfect in its element, Ghosts is a tragedy that’s a must-see.”

“Milwaukee Rep’s Edward Morgan provides fascinating, uncommon theatre with his distinctive adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts. Morgan has transported the story from Norway to late 19th century South Carolina and made two characters black Americans. …The production puts forth a major message: we must be responsible for our choices lest we remain imprisoned in the traps of our own making, permanently scarring future generations.”
