BLITHE SPIRIT

26th to 29th March 2014 

Charles Condomine (ALF BLUNDEN), a successful novelist, had wanted to learn more about the occult for a new novel he was writing, so he arranged for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati (ALISON CUNNELL), to hold a sťance at his house, with invited guests Charles and Ruth Condomine (PAUL KELLY and DONNA LOVETT). At the sťance, she inadvertently summoned Charles's first wife, Elvira (CAROL JEWELL), who had been dead for seven years. Madame Arcati left after the sťance, unaware that she had summoned Elvira, who only Charles could see or hear. His second wife, Ruth (CHRISTINE SLATER), did not believe that Elvira existed until a floating vase was handed to her out of thin air. The ghostly Elvira then made continued, and increasingly desperate, efforts to disrupt Charles's current marriage. The play also featured ANGELA LAST as Edith the maid.
