Following up on her re-imagining of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard"  in January's world-premiere of Hannah Rittner's "Estate", director Mary-Colin Chisholm shifts Ibsen's Scandinavian classic to Edwardian era Halifax.  From the swirling colours and wild emotional  abandon of Chekhov to the tormented, tightly-laced world of  Ibsen, LunaSea explores these literary masterpieces from its uniquely feminist perspective.  When "Ghosts" was originally published in 1881, it was greeted with horror, disgust and censure, so much so that it wasn't produced until a year later and in Chicago of all places.  It was deemed sexually licentious, morally corrupt and "one of the filthiest things ever written in Scandinavia".  Over a hundred years later, LunaSea looks to the story of Helen and Oswald, Pastor Manders, Engstrand and Regina to examine how Ibsen's courageous tilting at the stifling constraints of social propriety continues to deliver its powerful assault on human hypocrisy .
To immerse the audience  in the world of the play, LunaSea has chosen to enact it in one of Halifax's most beloved architectural landmarks, the George Wright mansion on Inglis Street,  home to the Local Council of Women, Halifax.  This intimate setting and unique experience means seating is limited to 30.   

Starring  a stellar cast of  Martha Irving (The (Post) Mistress, The Glace Bay Miners' Museum), Naomi-Joy Blackhall-Butler (Sex and Violence, Forgive Me), Jeff Schwager (The Comedy of Errors, Intimate Apparel), Brian Heighton (White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, Bone Boy),
Lee J. Campbell (The Maritime Way of Life, Mesa).

With lighting by Leigh Ann Vardy, Set and Props by Tony Owen, Costumes by Emlyn Murray and Stage Management by Christian Murray
