Blithe Spirit is Noël Coward’s escapist comedy about a novelist who invites a medium to his house hoping for inspiration for his next book. Supernatural comedy ensues when the dead ex-wife’s spirit is summoned and seems eager to reclaim her former husband…in this world or the next.
Blithe Spirit is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
“As the satirical comedy about the foibles of love and marriage continues, the two women battle it out for possession of their husband while Charles begins to wonder if he really wants to be with either of them.: – Marlaena Moore
Preview in VUE Weekly
“Over seven decades after Coward wrote Blithe Spirit, it is a joy to return to that 40’s Kent town, frozen forever in time, where bright and amusing characters express themselves with spirit and style in a comedy that has lost none of its snap and grace.” – Colin McLean
