Adam Kotz talks about playing Pastor Manders in Richard Eyre's production of Ibsen's Ghosts


Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Richard Eyre

Adam Kotz starred as Pastor Manders in Richard's Eyre's award-winning revival of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts.

Adam discusses playing a character with a fractured sense of self and a strongly held dogma, and explains how, in giving Manders a complex inability to govern his emotions, Ibsen succeeds in fleshing out the familiar literary figure of 'the Pastor'.
