Blithe Spirit

Though it was first produced in 1941, Noel Coward’s charmingly silly Blithe Spirit remains one of the playwright’s most popular works. He wrote it when he thought his British brethren could use an uplifting night of theater. At the center of the story is Charles, a novelist who wants to write about the occult. So he brings home one Madame Arcati to hold a séance. When the kooky Arcati unknowingly conjures Elvira, Charles’s dead wife, things get pretty dicey. Seems Elvira doesn’t much care for Ruth, Charles’s new wife. Lots of ghostly troubles ensue when Ruth and Elvira face off.
