Blithe Spirit - May 2005
A classic comedy that features author and socialite Charles Condomine and his second wife, Ruth, who decide to hold a séance as an after-dinner entertainment. Their lives are soon turned upside down when the wildly eccentric medium, Madam Arcati, inadvertently conjures up the ghost of Charles' deceased first wife Elvira. Considerable strain is put on the marriage as Charles is forced to reassess his attitudes and whether he has really got over Elvira's death. The situation is not helped by only Charles being able to see Elvira, and her blithe campaign to reclaim her husband.
