Blithe Spirit

CSU Department of Theatre & Dance


CSU's Theatre program returns in person to the Outcalt Theatre with Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit." This classic comedy has been a favorite in the West End as well as Broadway stages for decades. CSU Theatre and Dance's Professor Russ Borski has created a new adaptation and will direct an updated version of the show set in present day Long Island. The play, performed in two acts, offers up the fussy, cantankerous novelist Charlie Condomine, remarried but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his first wife Elvira, called up by a visiting “happy medium,”one Madame Arcati. Worlds collide. Personalities clash, and Charlie’s current wife Ruth accidentally joins forces with Elvira in the afterlife. These two “blithe spirits” haunt their hapless husband into perpetuity.
