About Ibsen's Ghost: An Irresponsible Biographical Fantasy

Primary Stages in association with George Street Playhouse and by special arrangement with Daryl Roth and Ted Snowdon in association with Jamie deRoy presents 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.
