Blithe SpiritJennifer Saunders plays the clairvoyant Madame Arcati in Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, directed by former National Theatre director Sir Richard Eyre. Written in 1941, Coward's witty comedy provided light relief at the height of World War II when it was first staged. In this new production, which played to sell out audiences at Theatre Royal Bath last summer, Jennifer is joined by original cast members Geoffrey Streatfeild who stars as novelist Charles, Lisa Dillon as his second wife Ruth Condomine and Emma Naomi as his first Elvira whose ghost is inadvertently summoned at a seance. When she appears, visible only to Charles, and determined to sabotage his current marriage, life gets more complicated. This is the third play from Jonathan Church's Summer Season to transfer to the West End following Arthur Miller's The Price and Switzerland at the Ambassadors. The new production tours the UK playing at Richmond Theatre from 17th until 22nd February before arriving in the West End at the Duke of York's Theatre in March for a five week run.

 

About Duke of York's Theatre

This West End theatre has more than its share of name changes. Originally called The Trafalgar in 1894, it became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V. During the late 1990s, the name was temporarily changed to The Royal Court Theatre. More about Duke of York's Theatre
