The scene is French Guiana, 1910.  A region where on Christmas Day the temperature has graciously dropped to 104 degrees.  Three convicts are employed as roofers by a family, whose roof is in desperate need of maintenance.  On the way from France is an evil-minded cousin, to oust the father of the family from his business, and his cold-blooded nephew, who is jilting the father’s daughter for an heiress.  The three convicts – two of them murderers, the third a swindler – take the visitors on.  All three have warm hearts and are passionate believers in true justice.  Possessing every criminal art and penal grace, they set matters right and in doing so redeem themselves as real life angels to the grateful family.

7 Roles: 2 Male/5 Female

EDITH - a maid
RUTH - Charles' current wife
CHARLES - husband to Ruth and, before her passing, to Elvira
DR. BRADMAN
MRS. BRADMAN
MADAME ARCATI - a medium
ELVIRA - Charles' late wife, a ghost

BLITHE SPIRIT (by Noel Coward) is a comedy about fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium" Madame Arcati. As personalities clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over," joins Elvira and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

BLITHE SPIRIT was first seen in the West End in 1941, creating a new long-run record for non-musical British plays of 1,997 performances. It also did well on Broadway later that year, running for 657 performances. Coward adapted the play for film in 1945, starring Rex Harrison, and directed the musical adaptation, High Spirits, on Broadway in 1964. It was also adapted for television in the 1950s and 1960s and for radio. The play enjoyed several West End and Broadway revivals in the 1970s and 1980s and was revived again in London in 2004, 2011 and 2014. It returned to Broadway in February 2009.
