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’s dead wife, Elvira. Visible only to Charles, Elvira makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles’s new wife, Ruth. One husband, two feuding wives, and a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Coward’s unworldly comedy?
Written in 1941, Blithe Spirit remained the longest-running comedy in the history of British theatre for three decades thereafter. Dealing with relationships on both sides of the grave, it remains an enduring comedic classic. All ages welcome!
