Review this show


Novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth are literally haunted by a past relationship when an eccentric medium - Madame Arcati - inadvertently conjures up the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, at a séance. When she appears, visible only to Charles, and determined to sabotage his current marriage, life - and the afterlife - get complicated.

"Absolutely fabulous… comic gold. Jennifer Saunders is a delight"

"Jennifer Saunders… brilliantly funny. Enormous life affirming fun"

"Jennifer Saunders… a revelation. A fabulous Coward revival. Richard Eyre has cast to perfection across the board"

Jennifer Saunders is one of the UK’s most popular comic actresses. Her gleefully funny performance as the eccentric clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, delighted both critics and audiences alike when the production opened in Theatre Royal Bath’s 2019 Summer Season.

Lisa Dillon (Ruth) is best known for her role as Mary Smith in BBC 1’s Cranford.

Richard Eyre, director of the National Theatre for ten years, is the winner of five Olivier Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award.
