About the show

Journey Lab presents 'The Alving Estate,' an immersive, site-sympathetic theatrical experience adapted from Ibsen's 'Ghosts' and set in the 1950's where audiences are free to choose their own narrative. More…

Brought on as prospectively employed household help, the audience is adorned with surgical masks and white cotton gloves; they are launched into the center of a story where family, betrayal, and disease intersect. An intimate evening where struggles are made to keep secrets in and demons out.
