Blithe Spirit

Noel Coward’s dark comedy of spiritualism and ghosts. It was first performed in 1941 but is probably set in the late 1930s as there is no mention of the war nor of food and petrol rationing! It ran for 1997 performances which was a record until The Mousetrap overtook it. Staging this play presents a few interesting challenges, books falling off bookshelves, a gramophone lid opening and shutting on its own, a picture falling off the wall are just a few; plus two ghosts onstage only visible to one other member of the cast.
