From Samuel French:
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the
playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantakerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but
haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is
called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities
clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over", joins Elvira and the two
"blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.
