Noel Coward's 'Blithe Spirit' at Chenango River Theatre

Play

Greene’s Chenango River Theatre presents Noel Coward’s timeless comedy ‘Blithe Spirit’ August 18 through September 10, with a talk-back after the August 25 performance. “To research a new book he’s writing, Charles invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance.  The disbelieving Charles is shocked when the séance unleashes the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent temptress Elvira.  Both worldly and unworldly personalities clash in one of the most refreshing “menages a trois” in modern theatre as Charles’ current wife Ruth battles Elvira for her husband’s attention. ”

Jennifer Terrell, playing Ruth, and Eliza Shea, playing Elvira, join us to talk about this hilarious play.  And we were pleased to say hello to Eliza’s parents who were listening in London. http://wskg.org/audio/blithe.mp3
