Ghosts, Henrik Ibsen's drama on the family travails of the Alvings, is adapted and directed by esteemed theatre director Richard Eyre at the Almeida Theatre this autumn. Lesley Manville, best known for her frequent collaborates with film director Mike Leigh, taking the lead role in 'Another Year', stars as Helene Alving alongside Jack Lowden who plays her son. Lowden's recent theatre credits include Quartermaine's Terms at Wyndham's Theatre while Will Keen, who plays Pastor Manders, was most recently playing Eric Liddell in Chariots Of Fire at the Hampstead Theatre and in the West End.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
