“An improbable farce in three acts”

SUDS presents Blithe Spirit, a farcical supernatural play by Noel Coward

When Charles Condomine gets hit with a stroke of writers’ block, he invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcarti to perform a séance for inspiration for his new book … and … spoiler alert: everything goes to sh*t! Come enjoy a night filled with comedy and ghosts, as Elvira, Charles’s ex-wife, re-emerges from the dead to wreak havoc on the Condomines’ ‘happy’ marriage.
