DO the sins of the father visit the son? Does each man kill the thing he loves? These questions are central to the plot of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, showing at the Arcola.

Osvald returns to his native Norway after years abroad. His mother, Mrs Alving, is delighted to welcome home her son to celebrate the heroic memory of his dead father.

But in no time at all, she finds herself forced to reveal past secrets and unearth ghosts who refuse to be silenced.

In collaboration with production company ATC, Award-winning playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz returns to the Dalston theatre with her adaptation of Ibsen's controversial classic play, following the critical and box office success of last year's An Enemy Of The People.

Subtitled Those Who Return, Ghosts is showing at Arcola, Arcola Street, from Wednesday to August 22 at 8pm. Tickets cost £16, £10 for concessions. For more information and offers, go to www.arcolatheatre.com.
