Red Curtain's second show of the 2017-2018 season is "Blithe Spirit," a witty supernatural comedy written by Noel Coward.
The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when Charles is haunted by the ghost of his temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance.
Directed by Joe Goins, "Blithe Spirit" is a timeless favorite of theatre audiences.
