BlackBox Theatre Company presents an outdoor production of Noël Coward’s timeless classic, Blithe Spirit.

Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, has had two wives – one is most certainly living and the other is most certainly dead! However, after a rather eventful séance held by the eccentric Madame Arcati, the ghost of his temperamental first wife has come to visit, much to the consternation of the current Mrs Condomine. Two wives, ‘living’ under the same roof? What could possibly go wrong?

The play was first produced at The Manchester Opera House in 1941 and over the years ‘Coward’s masterpiece’ has become a firm favourite with theatre audiences around the world. It has been made into two films, the first starring Rex Harrison and the formidable Margaret Rutherford and most recently a Hollywood retelling starring Judi Dench as Madame Arcati.

We will be limiting the number of people admitted to each event to ensure appropriate social distancing between each group and once you have been seated face coverings may be removed.

Please note seating for this event will be on benches and you will be allocated a space on arrival.
