The classic comedy Blithe Spirit by Sir Noel Coward is a spirited farce about a British novelist whose home is haunted by a mischievous ghost

Charles Condomine: Try to see my point of view, dear. I’ve been married to Ruth for five years and you’ve been dead for seven.

Elvira Condomine: Not dead, Charles. Passed over. It’s considered very vulgar to say dead where I come from.

The Story: Many relationships are haunted by the memory of past loves, but few are haunted by the past loves themselves. Successful author Charles Condomine (Murren Kennedy) is content with his life. Having lost his first wife Elvira (Jayna Sweet) seven years previously, he has remarried and is more or less happy with his new wife Ruth (Elizabeth Jackson).

In researching material for his next book about a fraudulent medium, Charles invites a local medium, Madame Arcati (Caren Graham), to conduct a seance. The cynical Charles, however, gets more than he bargained for when Madame Arcati successfully re-materializes Elvira, who wreaks havoc throughout the Condomine household.

In the dazzling, mannered world of Sir Noël Coward, the result is one of the funniest ghost stories ever to grace the stage. Battling brides, wild special effects and one of the zaniest mystics of all time make this comedy a must-see. Other players in the talented cast include Samantha Blaine, Stephanie Crowley, and David Heath.
