Blithe Spirit sees the return of Angela Lansbury - the legendary star of stage, film and Murder She Wrote - to London at the Gielgud Theatre. Written by Noel Coward, the West End play sees Lansbury once again team up with director Michael Blakemore in the award winning role of Madame Arcati. Gathering information for his new novel, writer Charles Condomine invites the odd Madame Arcati to his house to hold a séance. Drifting into a trance, Arcati appears to summon the ghost of Condomine’s late wife. With only Condomine able to see the spirit, the ghost attempts to win back her husband, much to the annoyance of his new wife. Who will end up victorious in this witty tale of one husband and two wives at war?
