Blithe Spirit May 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 & 30, 2015

HATS' Spring play is Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, a classic British comedy, directed & produced by Eve Earles. 


Noel Coward’s hilarious supernatural comedy, Blithe Spirit comes to Holsworthy in May 2015. The play first opened in London’s West End in 1941 and has barely been off stage since.

Looking to conduct some research for his next book, writer Charles Condomine invites Madam Arcarti, a spiritualist, to his home so that he can observe what happens at a séance. He doesn’t believe that Madam Arcarti can commune with the deceased, so imagine his surprise when his first wife puts in an uninvited appearance! And the second Mrs Condomine is not at all impressed by the first Mrs Condomine’s (Elvira) ghostly arrival.

Elvira proceeds to wreak havoc in the household. To see how the story unfolds, book your tickets now for Noel Coward’s quintessential British comedy.

Director Evelyn Earles said: “We have a great cast for this excellent play, featuring some HATS regulars and some new talent. We put on three productions a year, one of which is our annual post-Christmas pantomime. If you’ve never seen one of our productions, I urge you to come along and give it a go. You may even fancy joining us in the future – either on-stage or behind the scenes. As a community theatre group, we always welcome new members.”

Tickets are on sale now from the theatre box office in Bodmin Street, Holsworthy, from 10am to 3pm (not Sundays) or call 01409 253826 during the same hours. The play runs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for two consecutive weeks, 21 to 30 May 2015.
