Sydney Theatre Company have produced a wonderful short piece of theatre for us all to enjoy from the comfort of our homes. Iconic Australian actress Heather Mitchell has recorded one of Noël Coward's pieces from his Collected Verse, 'Social Grace', a wonderful little scene in which a young female theatregoer meets a great actor she has long idolised.
Hoping to gather material for his novel, writer Charles Condomine invites psychic Madame Arcati to his home to conduct a séance and gets far more than he bargains for in Coward’s Tony Award winning comedy.
Starring Brian Gligor and Carol Mayo Jenkins, Blithe Spirit runs at Clarence Brown Theatre in Knoxville, Tennessee until Sunday, Feb 23, 2020.
Noël Coward's classic comedy runs at Salisbury Playhouse from Wednesday 22 April – Saturday 16 May, directed by Gareth Machin.
In deepest Berkshire, retired actress Judith Bliss and her eccentric family have invited guests over for a weekend in the country. But the promise of an idyllic stay is quickly forgotten as the hapless visitors become playthings in the family’s self-made melodrama, resulting in comedic chaos.
Cleverly constructed, wittily written and brilliantly entertaining, this is Coward at his best. A sparkling comedy of manners for a summer’s evening.
General release tickets on sale 17th January 10am. Cast to be announced.
