Theatre legend, Oscar-winner and five-time Tony Award-winner Angela Lansbury returns to the West End this spring for the first time in nearly forty years, in a new production of Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit.

Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine (Charles Edwards) invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati (Angela Lansbury) to his house for a séance. Whilst consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles’ dead wife Elvira (Jemima Rooper). Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles’ new wife Ruth (Janie Dee). One husband, two feuding wives and a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Coward’s unworldly comedy?
