About this show

Psychic mediums, séances gone awry, and celestial visitors are a recipe for amusement in Noel Coward's classic comedy. When Charles and Ruth Condomine invite their friends over for a séance with the eccentric Madame Arcati, they unearth more than they bargained for when Charles' late first wife materializes in a ghostly state. As the visiting specter frolics, Charles is caught between his live wife and dead wife in a play filled with what the The New York Times called "supernatural gags in verbal and physical permutations."
