NoŽl Coward's play Blithe Spirit is one of those theatre classics that every comedy theatregoer wants to see, and every comedy actor wants to be in.
First performed in 1941, the initial West End season ran for 1,997 performances, and later that year it ran on Broadway for 657 performances. It has been adapted for film, radio and television, but it is in live performance that the antics involved in the play's supernatural effects are most impressive and fun.
Madame Arcati is delighted to have summoned an actual manifestation.
Intensely funny and character-driven, Blithe Spirit combines farce, emotion, and wit to great effect.
Experienced comedy director Julian White is at the helm of this production, which stars Kirsty White as Ruth Condomine, Judith Boyd as Edith, Tony Glazebrook as Charles Condomine, Victoria Bensted as Elvira, Angus Macklyn as Dr. Bradman, Allison Johnstone as Violet Bradman, and Yvie Somerville as Madame Arcati.
