San Antonio, TX-- In an improbable farce, supernatural elementals and the elements of farce collide in Sir Noel Coward’s classic 1930’s comedy about socialite novelist Charles Condomine, who lives with his second wife Ruth in a cottage in Kent, England. Charles, seeking material for his new book on the occult, invites a local eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to conduct a séance even though he is skeptical of all things arcane. When Mme. Arcati’s magical, mystical rituals conjure up the spirit of Charles’ first wife, Elvira, a battle of wits, words and otherworldly schemes begins. Elvira is visible only to Charles, but it is Ruth who feels the brunt of Elvira’s machinations. Ruth proclaims it “a bloody battle – a duel to the death” between Elvira and Ruth, as each wife, consumed with jealousy of the other, claims Charles as her own true love. Don’t miss this hysterical show!
