Blithe Spirit

October 14 – October 31, 2010

Written by Noël Coward

Directed by Diane Malone

Blithe Spirit is set at the house of writer, Charles Condomine, and his wife, Ruth. One evening, Charles invites local eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a seance at his house. He asks along his friends, Dr. and Mrs. Bradman, intending to gather character inspiration from Madame Arcati for his latest book. Despite initially thinking the seance has been a failure, it soon becomes clear that Madame Arcati has unwittingly brought back Charles’ first wife, Elvira, to haunt him. Once in his house, Elvira is unable to leave and, as she cannot be seen or heard by Ruth, she causes all kinds of mischievous trouble between the married couple.

"Director Diane Malone has a firm grip on the show, pacing it for maximum amusement. The show is fleet and funny and sophisticated- everything one could want from it. Malone cast every part well, from Saska Richards’ small-but-important (and very funny) role as Edith, the over -eager maid; to the doctor and his wide, to all of the condomines. Young wrings every bit of dry wit from his lines as Charles, and also has terrific chemistry with both Eanes and Harolds. Eanes is pitch-perfect as Ruth, and she and Young get all the beats of the relationship right."
