Blithe Spirit Opens Tonight


Marion – Giving Tree Theater presents the Noel Coward comedy Blithe Spirit tonight through October 30. A ghost story, this may be the perfect play to get you in the mood for the Halloween season.

To gather material for his next book, Charles and his strait-laced second wife Ruth, invite the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati to their country home to conduct a séance. However, the ‘spirited’ séance goes wrong when the ghost of Charles’ first wife, Elvira, is inadvertently summoned. Appearing only to Charles, the wild and temperamental Elvira soon outstays her welcome by making increasingly desperate attempts to disrupt Charles’ marriage to Ruth. In a clash of personalities, ghostly and mortal, love and marriage soon turns into laughter and mayhem when the feuding wives plot to sabotage each other’s and Charles’ existence!

The show is directed by Jay Burken, with assistant direction by Maddie Voss. Costume Design by Anne Ohrt.
