Blithe Spirit

Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit is an improbable farce about socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance hoping to gather material for his next book.

His scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, following the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.

Blithe Spirit is performed this week by The Third age Players at the Chrysalis Theatre in Milton Keynes and Admiral Costumes is delighted to have provided some of the period costumes for this play.
