John W. Borek and Underwords in cooperation with DVC presents: Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen

John W. Borek and Underwords in cooperation with DVC presents: Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen

Sept 29- Oct 1

Ghosts is a scathing commentary on 19th-century morality, particularly the repression and delusion of the era. Because of its subject matter, it immediately generated strong controversy and negative criticism. Now considered a classic, the play’s themes resonate as powerfully as they did 130 years ago, a testament to Ibsen’s writing, and a sad reflection on the state of the modern world.

GhostsShowtimes:
Thursday, Sept 29 @ 8pm (preview performance)
Friday, Sept 30 @ 8pm
Saturday, Oct 1 @ 2pm & 8pm

Tickets: $15 at the door, $12 advance at www.muccc.org,
