Blithe Spirit coming to a plays and players near you

Haddonfield Plays and Players has announced its next performance, “Blithe Spirit,”
written by David Lean, Anthony Havelcok-Allan, Ronald Neame and Noel Coward.

When writer Charles Condomine decides to hold a séance as research for a new mystery novel, he has no idea that he’ll end up being haunted by his now-deceased first wife, Elvira — a ghost that only he can see. Not surprisingly, Charles’ second wife, Ruth, isn’t amused by his claim that Elvira is in the room, and the comedy quotient rises to a fever pitch when Madame Arcati, the daffy medium who conducted the séance, tells Charles she has no idea how to send this blithe spirit back where she came from.
