BWW Review: GHOSTS at Williamstown Theatre Festival Proves to be Fresh and Remarkably Photo BWW Review: GHOSTS at Williamstown Theatre Festival Proves to be Fresh and Remarkably Relevant.
by Marc Savitt - Aug 11, 2019

This production with the new translation is notably fresh and remarkably relevant. To WTF's Artistic Director, Mandy Greenfield's credit it is another excellent inclusion in a rich and diverse season. The language is contemporary and easy to follow, understand, and relate to. The subject matter, which includes religion, venereal disease, incest, and euthanasia, questions accepted social practices and norms. Possibly surprising the audience and most definitely stirring up debate. Where most regular tragedies deal mainly with the unhappy consequences of breaking the moral code, GHOSTS deals with the consequences of not breaking it. The parallels between the material written 138 years ago and events currently playing out in the US and across the world are stunning and undeniable.
