About this show

Mrs. Alving is overjoyed when her son Oswald returns from Paris for the opening of an orphanage dedicated to his late father. But with the arrival of Pastor Manders, an old family friend, dark secrets from the past emerge, and the sins of one generation unleash tragedy on the next. Its dramatic themes were shocking when it opened in 1881 -- today, Ibsen's indictment of hypocritical morality and social convention remains one of the most powerful plays ever written.
