Blithe Spirit ()

Produced by

Soulpepper Theatre Company

Playwright: Noël Coward
Director: Morris Panych


The Marilyn and Charles Baillie Theatre


November 7th, 2007 – December 15th, 2007


Full of Noel Coward’s customary hilarity, this play mixes marriage, desire, jealousy and grief with a powerful dose of the occult. Full of delightful characters including an inept maid, wacky clairvoyant and very naughty ghost, Blithe Spirit is a delicious evening of surprise and laughter. (
