Ghosts: After Ibsen

Front Cover
Gallery Press, 2002 - Drama - 63 pages
In this newly revised, freely adapted version of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, Kilroy bravely examines ways in which the sins of a father are visited on children in a family frightened by ghosts. Forces of the past and present collide in this biopsy of the interactions between private and public lives, between Church and secular values, and of the characters' prospects as they try to make up for lost time where there's no space left for the truth.
