Anglian Players to perform Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit

THE Anglian Players are performing Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit for their Autumn production.

The comedy takes place in the living room of suave and urbane novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife, Ruth

She is a little jealous of Charles’ first wife, Elvira, who died in the same room from a heart attack 7 years previously, after laughing at a musical programme on the BBC.

Charles is writing a new novel about a homicidal Medium, and to collect material for this, he and Ruth invite the flamboyant Madame Arcati, a local psychic, to their home to conduct a s�ance.

To make up the numbers and thinking that the vicar wouldn’t approve, they also invite Dr and Mrs Bradman.

Dr Bradman is old-fashioned and sceptical, with scant regard for medical confidentiality. Mrs Bradman tries very hard, but oh dear every time she opens her mouth she seems to get it wrong.

Madame Arcati is unaware that the s�ance is a setup, but everyone gets more than they are bargaining for, when Elvira turns upd she wants Charles back and Ruth off the scene. Charles is the only one who can see and hear her, a situation of which she takes full advantage, at Ruth’s expense, and with hilarious results.
