Why See Blithe Spirit?

a theatrical classic

Clear away the dinner plates, dim the lights and join the Guthrie for Noel Coward's classic occult farce. A surefire exciting and entertaining night at the theatre, Blithe Spirit has been titillating audiences since 1941 with the story of novelist Charles Condomine and his disastrous attempt to communicate with the spirit world. As Charles learns from the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati, sometimes it's better to leave the dead where they are!

knock once for yes, the story of Blithe Spirit

One of Noel Coward's most delightfully silly and breezily funny works, Blithe Spirit follows Charles Condomine and his wife Ruth when they invite medium Madame Arcati to their home as research for Charles' forthcoming book. Unwittingly, the peculiar Arcarti summons a spectre from Charle's past he would rather have forgot, that is, his late first wife Elvira. Temperamental, precocious and not at all impressed by Charles remarrying, the ghost of Elvira sets about to destroy his and Ruth's relationship. Full of mishaps, invisible tricks, witty writing and more, Blithe Spirit is a scarily hilarious experience yoy won't want to miss.
