About the show

After an acclaimed summer season at Theatre Royal Bath, Jennifer Saunders reprises her role as an eccentric clairvoyant in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit for the West End. Described by critics as “enormous, life-affirming fun” (The Times), the production opens for a limited season at the Duke of York’s Theatre.

In true Noel Coward style, Blithe Spirit is a comedic caper about novelist Charles Condomine, who finds himself plagued by the ghost of a past love. After oddball medium Madame Arcati performs a séance at his request, Charles’ first wife Elvira is mistakenly unleashed, determined to sabotage her former flame’s new marriage and make his life a misery. But will anyone believe it when only Charles can see her?

Blithe Spirit in the West End stars Jennifer Saunders as Madame Arcati. Saunders performed the role to audience and critical acclaim in Bath and has proven her comedic chops in hugely popular television shows French and Saunders and Absolutely Fabulous.

Saunders is joined by returning cast members Lisa Dillon (BBC’s Cranford) and Geoffrey Streatfeild (BBC’s Spooks, Donmar Warehouse: My Night With Reg), with other cast members yet to be confirmed.

Director Richard Eyre is no stranger to Noel Coward, having directed Private Lives starring Kim Cattrall on Broadway. The recipient of five Olivier Awards for his directing work, he was also Artistic Director at the National Theatre from 1987 to 1997. He is joined on the creative team by Tony Award winning designer Anthony Ward (Oklahoma!).

Dim the lights, gather around and get ready to jump at things that go bump in the night; we don’t need a crystal ball to know Blithe Spirit at the Duke of York’s Theatre is a must-see. It opens for a limited run from 5 March 2020.
