Dentons Kensington Swan season of
by Noel Coward
Raise your spirits with Noël Coward’s uproarious masterpiece!
When writer Charles Condomine visits spiritualist Madame Arcati to research his new book, what could possibly go wrong? That is, other than the resulting seance bringing Charles’ dead wife Elvira back to Earth – a development that doesn’t sit well with his new wife Ruth, particularly as Elvira’s attempts to reunite with her husband escalate...
When Blithe Spirit debuted in 1941 in war-torn London, its hysterical hijinks proved just the tonic for a shell-shocked population. A record-setting run followed and, over the decades, grand dames from Angela Lansbury to Judi Dench have filled Madame Arcati’s kaftan on stage and screen. Auckland Theatre Company proudly continues the tradition with our very own Lyn of Tawa, Ginette McDonald, leading a killer cast through Coward’s high-spirited signature farce.
Treat yourself to an other-worldly comic gem and a blissfully brilliant night out at the theatre!
