‘Blithe Spirit’ Open Air Performance

On Tuesday 3rd July 2018 at 7.30pm

The Changeling Theatre return to the Garrison Church with their performance of Noel Coward's 'Blithe Spirit'.

In 2017 Changeling Theatre performed an imaginative and evocative production of Hamlet as the sun set over the atmospheric ruin of St George's Garrison Church. On the evening of Tuesday 3rd July 2018 this hugely talented Company return with an open air performance of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit...

It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit....

"Celebrated novelist Charles Condomine has invited a local medium and eccentric, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house, as research for his new book. Arcati calls up the ghost of Charles’ first wife – the alluring Elvira – who delights in taunting her husband and mocking his new marriage to his new wife Ruth."

Blithe Spirit is one of Coward’s most enduring comedies, recently revived in London’s West End with Angela Lansbury as Madame Arcati. This is Changeling’s second open air Coward, the previous being the hugely popular Hayfever in 2015.

There are limited tickets available so book now at: glypt.cloudvenue.co.uk/blithespirit (Adults £15, Children £8, Concession £8)
