Two women, one dead, the other very much alive, want the same man – their husband. It all starts with a spiritistic séance…
Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a new book he is writing. He invites the equally sceptical Dr and Mrs. Bradman and arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. During the séance, Madame Arcati inadvertently summons Charles' deceased first wife Elvira. Only seen and heard by Charles, Elvira immediately sets out to disrupt Charles’ marriage to his current wife Ruth…
And so the “play” begins… Black humour with unexpected twists and turns… Famous English playwright Noel Coward at his best!
Noel Coward (1899 – 1973) was a prolific English playwright, actor and composer, famous for his sharp sense of humour and sophistication. His black comedy “Blithe Spirit” is his most enduring work from the war years. The play broke box-office records at London’s West End and was also produced on Broadway and made into several films. A new film version, starring Dame Judi Dench, is currently under way and scheduled for release in 2020.
