Ilkley Playhouse have been regular visitors to Minack since 1975, winning the trophy for best production in 1979 for ‘Camelot’ and in 2009 for ‘The Crucible’ This is our twenty-third visit.

We are delighted to present an absolutely classic play, ‘Blithe Spirit’ by that master of wit, Noël Coward.  You can expect characteristic 1930s glamour, elegance and panache. 

Charles Condomine is a successful author, researching his new book with the help of his second wife, Ruth. He invites what he believes to be a charlatan spiritual medium to his home and the outcome is quite unexpected. Is the medium Madame Arcati a fraud? Or maybe the happenings in the house are the product of Charles’s frenzied imagination? Or is there someone else in the house who could help? Whatever the outcome this will prove an evening of fun and complete escapism. 

So, join us for a night (or afternoon) of supernatural humour from the pen of that icon of 1930s style, Noël Coward. 

This amateur production of “Blithe Spirit” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
