Shocks in store as 'Ghosts' comes to Adel

From L to R: Regina (Helen Duce), Engstrand (David Pritchard), Oswald (Chris Andrews), Mrs Alving (Dianne Newby), Pastor Manders (Rob Colbeck)

What is a woman to do? Seek love and self-fulfilment by abandoning a rotten husband, or obey society’s rules and devote herself to her family?
Mrs Alving, in Henrik Ibsen’s classic drama, follows the call of duty only to find the cost in human terms is cruelly high.
Poignant, laughable and very moving, ‘Ghosts’ touches nerves that are as sensitive today as they were a century ago.
'Ghosts' is performed at the Adel War Memorial Hall, LS16 8DE, from Wednesday 24 to Saturday 27 April (7.30pm).
Ibsen's masterpiece attacking the rigid social conventions of the time is the third and final play in Adel Players' 2012-13 season.
Alan Ayckbourn's 'Bedroom Farce' sold out its four-night run in January, while the October production of Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons' was described as "superb" by amateur theatre magazine Sardines.
Tickets for 'Ghosts' cost £7 and bookings can be made on (0113) 275 5585, or via the website at
