Illuminating the stage with the chilling tale of a widow's struggle against her past and the fragile future of her son, Hill-Gibbins' adaptation is set to leave audiences marvelling at its exploration of taboo themes. As the first modern tragedy to hit this Playhouse, Ghosts promises a theatre experience in London that is as profound as it is unforgettable. You simply can't afford to miss this.

The Story
