Described by the playwright Nöel Coward as “an improbable farce”, Blithe Spirit is a classic English comedy written in typical Nöel Coward style with his subtle but biting social commentary on the English wealthy class in the early 1940s.

The play follows Charles Condomine, an irritable and finicky novelist, who invites the eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance to gather material for his next book. What begins as a harmless plan to cure his writers block backfires when the jealous blithe spirit of his first wife, Elvira, is accidentally summoned, subsequently disturbing his domestic life with his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the spirit.
