 Location:England, London

A team of professional actors take Ibsen's gripping 19th century classic portrait of love, betrayal and hypocrisy to Battersea in a production and all designed, stage-managed and crewed by St Mary's University College undergraduate students.

In a new translation by Anouk Riviere-Tallaksen, Mrs Alving prepares for the opening of a Memorial Orphanage for her late husband whilst her son Oswald returns from bohemian Paris with poor health. Haunted by family secrets, which could destroy her son's future, she must decide, whether to admit past sins or protect the family name at all costs.

'Ghosts' is a powerful social saga interwoven with comic irony that ends in shocking revelations, giving brutal insight into a dysfunctional family and the strength and destruction of a mother's self denial.
