Sinners, saviours and spirits come to the great outdoors this summer as Kent’s only outdoor touring company embarks on its 2018 tour.
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 marriage to his new wife Ruth.
Blithe Spirit is one of Noel 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 production, the previous being the hugely popular Hayfever in 2015.
