This Comedy/Farce is about novelist Charles, who invites an eccentric medium to his house to conduct a seance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his willful and temperamental first wife. Elvira, after the seance. Once in his house, Elvira is unable to leave and, as she cannot be seen or heard by Ruth, causes all kinds of trouble between the married couple. When Elvira unwittingly causes Ruth's death in her attempts to bring Charles over to be with her, Charles becomes haunted by both of his now-deceased wives. Frustrated by their odd situation, the threesome calls on the medium once more to send Elvira & Ruth back to the other side. Intensely funny & character-driven, Blith Spirit combines farce, emotion, & wit to great effect.
