Henrik Ibsen’s play Ghosts is coming to Dubai

Up for a thought-provoking commentary on morality this weekend? The Junction’s take on Henrik Ibsen’s classic play is here to please.

Alserkal Avenue’s independent performing arts venue is putting on Ghosts, Ibsen’s hard-hitting play about 19th-century morality, for three evening shows.

Taking place from Thursday August 22 until Saturday August 24, the cast and crew includes director Shanker Ramchandaran, a former theatre student from National School of Drama in India.

The Junction’s summer production with kick off each night at 7.30pm, with ticket prices at Dhs75.

“Ghosts exposes how if we ignore the values and elements of our cultural pasts indiscriminately as we craft the cultures of the present; then the past will lash out and invade the present in extremely degenerated form,” said director of the show Shanker Ramchandaran.

“My team and I have spent over the past six months researching, discussing, and rehearsing. It has been an exciting to craft this production with the on and off-stage teams.”

If you’re up for laughter, The Junction will also be hosting the completely improvised comedy show Who Stands In Line Anyway? for one night only.

For something more mysterious, there’s also the UAE debut of An Inspector Calls coming this September.
Dhs75. Thu Aug 22-Sat Aug 24, 7.30pm. The Junction, Alserkal Avenue, www.thejunctiondubai.com (04 3388 525). Ticket available on www.dubai.platinumlist.net
