Synopsis

Blithe Spirit

The play is set in Kent, after the war, sometime in the late 1940s.

 To gather material for his next book, Charles and his strait-laced second wife Ruth, invite the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati to their country home to conduct a séance. However, the ‘spirited’ séance goes wrong when the ghost of Charles’ first wife, Elvira, is inadvertently summoned. Appearing only to Charles, the wild and temperamental Elvira soon outstays her welcome by making increasingly desperate attempts to disrupt Charles' marriage to Ruth. In a clash of personalities, ghostly and mortal, love and marriage soon turns into laughter and mayhem when the feuding wives plot to sabotage each other’s and Charles’ existence. But who will succeed?
