Synopsis
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As both the worldly and not so worldly personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed. Who then “passes over,” joining Elvira – and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
