IBSEN'S GHOST
AN IRRESPONSIBLE BIOGRAPHICAL FANTASY

Written by and starring Charles Busch
Directed by Carl Andress

With Christopher Borg, Jen Cody, Thomas Gibson, Kate Hampton, Judy Kaye, and Jennifer Van Dyck

The play Ibsen never wrote - but with more laughs and a happy ending!

Shortly after the death of celebrated playwright Henrik Ibsen, his widow Suzannah receives word that her husband’s former protégée is in town peddling a libelous diary exposing the playwright’s misdeeds. Enlisting help from her sharp-witted stepmother, Ibsen’s long-lost illegitimate son, a servant girl with a wayward pelvis, and an enigmatic rodent exterminator known as the Rat Wife, Suzannah sets out to preserve her husband’s legacy by any means necessary.

Written by and starring the legendary Charles Busch, Ibsen's Ghost tells a tall (and hilarious) tale of the toll a great man’s ghost takes on the women at the soul of his work.

Lead support for Ibsen’s Ghost is provided by the Garfield Family Fund in memory of Johanna Garfield, The A.R. Gurney Theater Fund, and The Andrew Leynse Legacy Project at Primary Stages.
Additional production support provided by Jim Kierstead. 
Major season support provided by the Estate of Anne Bernstein, The Howard Gilman Foundation, the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation, The Shubert Foundation,The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
