7 Kerikeri Theatre Company proudly presents “Blithe Spirit” by renowned playwright, Noël Coward and directed by Jenni Prisk.

“Blithe Spirit” is a delightful comedy that introduces us to Charles Condomine, a novelist who invites an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to his house for a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The evening takes a hilariously unexpected turn when the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, is summoned, leading to a series of comedic and unforeseen complications. 

Featuring a stellar local cast, this production brings Coward’s witty and ghostly world to life with charm, humour, and a touch of the supernatural. “Blithe Spirit” promises an evening of laughter, spectral shenanigans, and possibly a poignant moment or two as it explores themes of love, marriage, and the afterlife.

 Join us for an unforgettable journey into the comedic beyond this May, at Kerikeri Theatre Company’s own Black Box Theatre!
