Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noel Coward and concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a seance, hoping to gather material for his next book.  The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his wilful and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the seance.  Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’s marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.
