UK Tour of Henrik Ibsen's GHOSTS Previews Tonight at Rose Theatre Kingston
English Touring Theatre and the Rose Theatre Kingston are delighted to announce their co-production of Henrik Ibsen's classic, Ghosts. The show will preview at the Rose Theatre Kingston, from today 19 September 2013, before touring nationwide to Salisbury, Oxford, Guildford, York, Watford and Malvern.
It has been twenty years since Stephen Unwin foundEd English Touring Theatre, making this co-production the perfect collaboration to celebrate the company's 21st Anniversary. Stephen will direct his own translation, with design by Simon Higlett and lighting design by Paul Pyant. They will take inspiration from an original design by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, famous for his painting 'The Scream'. This will be the first time the designs have been used since the 1906 production.
Stephen originally directed Ghosts to critical acclaim in 2002. Talking about his 2013 production, he commented, 'I'm thrilled to be returning to English Touring Theatre 20 years after founding this company. I am a self-confessed Ibsen fanatic and this production of Ghosts is the best way of celebrating 20 years of English Touring Theatre.'
English Touring Theatre's Director Rachel Tackley said about today's announcement, 'As the company gears up to celebrate its 21st Birthday in 2014, I can literally think of no better director to celebrate with us than our founder, Stephen Unwin. Whilst English Touring Theatre, Stephen and Ibsen's classic play are no strangers, this promises to be one of our most exciting new productions and I'm thrilled we can share it across the country.'
