Current Show... Blithe Spirit

By Noel Coward

20 June -  7 July 2018
Charles Condomine, whose first wife Elvira has been dead for seven years, has been reasonably happy with his second wife, Ruth. After he invites Madame Arcati, a local medium, to conduct a seance at their home, Elvira returns from the dead. Determined to get Charles to herself forever, she arranges several 'accidents', one of which culminates in Ruth joining Elvira. Charles is now plagued by two jealous squabbling spirits and his life is getting very, very complicated!
