Charles Condomine a popular novelist, lives a simple country life with his second wife, Ruth. Searching for inspiration for his newest novel, they invite Madame Arcati and their closest friends, round for a séance. Instead of conjuring up a random ghoul for the night however, Madame Arcati manages to accidentally bring back Charles’ first wife Elvira, who died seven years previously of a heart attack while laughing at a BBC
Light Program on the radio. Elvira attempts to disrupt his marriage to Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost. Exploring themes of deception, love, loyalty, and the complex legacy of past relationships, Blithe Spirit is one of Coward’s most acclaimed plays.
