"Any time you come together with family, it makes for a rich rehearsal process. We think more quickly, there's a lot of trust. And I think what you find is a very layered, nuanced performance."
GHOSTS Director Donald Hicken, Resident Company Member Deborah Hazlett (playing the role of Mrs. Alving) and Resident Company Member Bruce Randolph Nelson (playing the role of Jakob Engstrand) talk about the cast of GHOSTS.

One of the greatest stories in modern drama. Mrs. Alving has kept the sins of her late husband a secret for her entire life. But soon the ghosts of the past catch up to her when her only son arrives back home with a deadly illness, looking for answers. Trapped within the walls of Victorian society, this gripping and haunting tale tells the story of a woman trying to break through the lies and deceit from her past to save her estranged son.
"Phenomenal...it has so much resonance for our time."
