The theatre season opens on the Outcalt Theatre stage with the wit of Noel Coward’s play BLITHE SPIRIT, running October 21-31, 2021. This classic comedy has been a favorite in the West End as well as Broadway stages for decades. “This updated version of the show is a new adaptation that will take place in present day Long Island,” says Russ Borski, associate professor of theatre, who has adapted the script and will direct the production.

The play, performed in two acts, offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting ’happy medium,’  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.
