About this show

ShawChicago returns to the Studio Theater with Henrik Ibsen's compelling drama. Mrs. Alving is trying to put a positive gloss on her late husband's dissolute philandering life by creating an orphanage in his name. She is assisted in the project by Pastor Manders, who had persuaded her years earlier to remain tied to the sins of her husband for the sake of social approval. Her son Oswald's return from abroad with a fatal disease, possibly the result of her unwise marital compromise, destroys her project and exposes a web of deceit, blackmail, possible incest, and death.
