Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is a major figure whose work has had a profound influence on modern theatre.
Ibsen often examined the harsh reality of life and applied a critical eye to contemporary morality in a way that was considered at the time to be scandalous and provocative.
His 1881 play, "Ghosts", is a scathing commentary by Ibsen on what he saw as the dubious morality of the society around him. It deals with issues that were doubtless highly controversial at the time it was written, and which remain challenging and relevant today.
The play is being presented by a local Perth Company at the Subiaco Arts Centre from 24 October through to 3 November 2012.
