Blithe Spirit

By NoŽl Coward

Directed by Dan Myers

Strollers Theatre, ltd. presents NoŽl Coward's sparkling comedy and "improbable farce." Blithe Spirit revolves around Charles, who is planning a sťance as research for his new book. He invites the eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, into his English country home, intending to expose the Madame as a fraud.

To witness this event, Charles and his second wife, Ruth, invite the skeptical Dr. Bradman and his anxious-to-believe wife, Violet. When, in the course of the sťance, Madame Arcati mistakenly summons Charles' first wife, Elvira, back from the beyond, things get thoroughly out of hand.

Produced by Strollers Theatre at Bartell Theatre's Evjue Stage, 113 E. Mifflin St., Madison
