Blithe Spirit

by Noel Coward
November 12 - 27, 2010
Bookings Open 18 October

Directed by David Went


Horror novelist Charles Condomine's introductory toast "To the unseen!" - has particular resonance when he and his second wife Ruth invite the superbly batty clairvoyant Madame Arcati into their home to conduct a seance to provide research material for Charles' new novel.  The seance leads to the most bizarre menage-a-trois in the history of the stage when Charles' first wife Elvira returns from the dead.
