Blithe Spirit

    • Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati to his house for a séance. Whilst consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles’ dead wife, Elvira. Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles’ new wife, Ruth.

      One husband, two feuding wives, a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Noel Coward’s unworldly comedy?

      Written in 1941, Blithe Spirit remained the longest-running comedy in the history of Briitish theatre for three decades thereafter. Dealing with relationships on both sides of the grave, it is an enduring classic!
