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 coming to Richmond Theatre from 17th until 22nd February before arriving in the West End at the Duke of York's Theatre for a five week run.

 

About Richmond Theatre

The Victorian Richmond Theatre, which opened on 18 September 1899 with a performance of As You Like It, is one of the best examples of work by theatrical architect Frank Matcham. The interior is ornate, with lots of gilt detailing and plush fabrics. More about Richmond Theatre
