About the Show

Blithe Spirit introduces us to fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity. Until death do us part, or so we thought—Blithe Spirit runs February 28 through March 8, 2020.
