Publisher's Summary

When novelist Charles Condomine invites a medium into his house in order to learn about the occult for his new book, the last thing he or his second wife dream is that the seance will bring back his first wife, Elvira, who wants Charles all to herself! This is considered to be one of Coward's best and most unusual farces.

Fabulous fun!

This is a terrific audio production of one of Coward's best and funniest plays. If you liked "Private Lives," you'll love "Blithe Spirit." This cast is wonderful--with British alternately crisp and plummy voices, they make you taste the bone-dry martinis and feel the silk dressing gowns that the triangle of romantic characters must have worn! And Madame Arcady, the much too successsful psychic, is a comic gem. You will enjoy this one, I promise.

Loved it.

Loved the original with Margaret Rutherford and this was a good version. All the cast were brilliant.
