PLAY SUMMARY
BLITHE SPIRIT centers on Charles Condomine, a novelist who, along with his second wife Ruth, hosts a séance conducted by Madame Arcati, a quirky medium. The séance unexpectedly summons the spirit of Charles’s first wife, Elvira, who disrupts his current marriage. The couple’s friends, Dr. Bradman and his wife, also witness the chaos, while Edith, the maid, adds to the humor. The play explores themes of love, jealousy, and the supernatural with sharp wit and clever dialogue.

Alison Lynch will be directing BLITHE SPIRIT. Readings will be selected scenes (sides) from the script provided during the audition. You can reach Alison by text at 410-476-7437 or by emailing mrslynch1004@gmail.com for any special accommodations.
