Blithe Spirit

Thursday 26 September 2024, 7:45pm to Saturday 28 September 2024, 7:45pm

Thurrock Court Players presents 'Blithe Spirit' at Thameside Theatre.

Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noel Coward, described by the author as "an improbable farce in three acts". The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomime, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati to his house to conduct an seance, hoping to gather material for his next book.

The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his wilful and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after seance.

Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth who cannot see or hear the ghost.

There are 3 performances:
