The master comic playwright, Noël Coward’s famous play makes sparkling use of his arch wit to examine a most unusual domestic dispute…

When charming socialite and author, Charles, hosts a séance, he never expected it to work – let alone summon up the spirit of his first wife! Beautiful, seductive and a tad vengeful, Elvira is intent on winning Charles back. But his new wife, Ruth, isn’t giving up without a fight. Ghosts, gasps and other-worldly wit abound in this ‘spirited’ comedy.

Oxfordshire’s leading amateur theatre company, Oxford Theatre Guild, returns to the Playhouse with an enchanting, vibrant production of this Coward classic.

Duration: 2 hours 35mins with interval

Book Tickets

Age guideline: 12+

This amateur production of Blithe Spirit is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD
