Blithe Spirit was a smash comedy hit on the London and Broadway stages. This hilarious farce is about fussy cantankerous novelist, Charles Condomine who has remarried but is literally haunted by the ghost of his first wife, Elvira. Elvira has been called up by a visiting “kooky medium,” Madame Arcati. and laugh a minute pandemonium ensues.
