LONDON -- An acclaimed revival of Henrik Ibsen's grueling “Ghosts” was an early winner at London's Olivier stage awards Sunday, taking prizes for best revival and best supporting actor.
Director Richard Eyre adapted the play, stripping Ibsen's 19th-century script down to a lean, audience-draining 90 minutes.
Jack Lowden was named best supporting actor for the production, first staged at the small Almeida Theatre in north London.
The actor was delighted to win for his performance as the syphilitic son of a troubled family in the intense Norwegian tragedy.
