Olivier Award winner Sir Richard Eyre directs Jennifer Saunders in Noël Coward’s classic comedy at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London.

BAFTA winner Jennifer Saunders, one of the UK’s most popular comic actors, will revive her role as the preposterous clairvoyant Madame Arcati in Noël Coward’s comedy about death and the afterlife.

Blithe Spirit is booking until 11 April 2020 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

Novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth are literally haunted by a past relationship when an eccentric medium inadvertently conjures up the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, at a séance. When she appears, visible only to Charles, and determined to sabotage his current marriage, life – and the afterlife – get complicated.
