Blithe Spirit

2004 - 2005 Production


Having lost his first wife Elvira seven years previously, author Charles Condomine has remarried and is more or less happy with his new wife Ruth. In researching his latest work, Charles invites a local medium, Madame Arcati, to conduct a s'eance. The cynical Charles gets more than he bargained for when Madame Arcati successfully re-materializes Elvira, who continues to wreak havoc throughout the Condomine household. In the dazzling, mannered world of Noel Coward, the result is one of the funniest ghost stories ever to grace the stage. Battling brides, wild special effects and one of the zaniest mystics of all time make this fun-filled comedy a must see.
