Changeling Theatre – Blithe Spirit
5th July 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$18 – $19
Changeling Theatre brought Shakespeare’s Hamlet to Littlestone last year, and the production was so brilliant that the audience stayed to the very end, enduring a bitterly cold evening! This year, in the more sheltered surroundings of The Old School Garden, they return with Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.
Celebrated novelist Charles Condomine has invited a local medium and eccentric, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house, as research for his new book. Arcati calls up the ghost of Charles’ first wife – the alluring Elvira – who delights in taunting her husband and mocking his new marriage to his new wife Ruth.
Blithe Spirit is one of Coward’s most enduring comedies, and is Changeling’s second open air Coward, the previous being the hugely popular Hayfever in 2015.
Bring a chair, a rug and watch this wonderful play under the vast Marsh sky. (In the event of inclement weather, the performance will take place in St Nicholas Church.)
