off the WALL's GHOSTS Begins Tonightoff the WALL's GHOSTS Begins Tonight
by BWW News Desk (Pittsburgh)

(2/27/2015) - The history of Ghosts is as rich as the story line is intriguing. Strongly criticized by theater critics of the day as 'abominable, blasphemous, disgusting, sordid' and shunned by society in general, Ibsen scripted Ghosts to confront the hypocritical morality of the day. One factor that differentiates playwright Henrik Ibsen from his contemporaries was his stance as a leader of the evolving women's rights movement in 19th Century Europe. He challenged the status quo that women were obligated to accept the infidelities of their husbands, along with other unspoken improprieties. To Ibsen, these destructive secrets were rampant throughout society, roaming freely like unseen ghosts, trailing generation after generation as the phantom ills of society's consciousness.
