Synopsis

A theatre-lovers’ favourite ever since it was written, Blithe Spirit is a tug-of-love comedy with a difference: one of the lovers is a ghost. Novelist Charles, hoping to gather material for his next book, asks Madame Arcati (one of the great characters in all of theatre) to conduct a séance in his house. It works too well: his first wife returns from the other side, with predictably disastrous results for his second marriage. Noël Coward at his deadliest.
