Concept Players Blithe Spirit

The second visit in two months to this play and I was not disappointed. A lavish and highly practical set adorned the stage for a very professional and extremely well executed interpretation of this Noel Coward classic.

The director (Ruairidh and set designer Paul Buckle), had put a great deal of thought into the staging of this production and it really paid off. Great performances from Laurence Clarke, Ellie Hoare and Rhiannon Rose kept this play rolling along at a great tempo. The entrance of Madam Arcarti (Helen Windsor) was sublime and she gave the performance of a lifetime and the audience aching bellies from the constant laughter. The standard of the costumes was exceptional and the poltergeist scene at the end was very well executed. Hats off to Concept Players one and all, another great show under the belt. The company go from strength to strength and long may it continue. You are a “dedicated group of (talented) performers” who have been a shining light during my tenure as Regional Representative for District 4. I wish you every success with you future endeavours, and thank you for the warm welcome I have always received at your productions.
