Following the internationally acclaimed sold-out engagements on Broadway and London's West End, theatre legend, Oscar-recipient and five-time Tony Award® winner Angela Lansbury returns to the stage this winter in her Tony Award® winning role as Madame Arcati, in Michael Blakemore's revival of Noël Coward's smash-hit comedy play, Blithe Spirit.
Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati to his house for a séance. While consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles' dead wife Elvira. Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles' new wife Ruth. Now if he wants his latest marriage to stand a GHOST of a chance, he'd better conjure up a solution quickly. One husband, two feuding wives and a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Coward's unworldly comedy?
Don't miss what the Daily Telegraph hails as "a comedy that startles and delights! This is a tour de force that will glow in the memory of all who see it!" Wit... Style... Laughter... Why, it's the most spirited comedy you've seen in years.
