About the show

Blithe Spirit is a farcical comedy play by Noël Coward.

This play about a man whose domestic life is disturbed by the jealous ghost of his first wife shows Coward's humor at its ripest. The combination of drawing-room comedy and ghost story enhances Coward's usual subject of people whose lifestyles defy conventional morality.

The play was a hit with audiences during the war, despite poor reviews from critics, and ran for 1,997 performances on the West End and 657 performances on Broadway. Coward was a prolific playwright, poet, composer, director, actor, and singer known for his wit and flamboyance, and his work continues to influence popular culture.
