Theatre: "Blithe Spirit" by Noel Coward


Location: Decio Mainstage Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Charles and his charming second wife, Ruth, live comfortably in the country, but all of that is about to change. Charles plans an amusing evening with the Bradmans by inviting Madame Arcati, a medium, to their home to hold a séance. The event turns into a nightmare of hilarity, however, when a very jealous Elvira, Charles’s first wife, returns from the hereafter and attempts to take matters into her own ethereal hands. Noel Coward’s “improbable farce in three acts,” Blithe Spirit (1941), takes the audience on an amusing journey through this world and the next in one of the theatre’s most enduring comedy classics.
