In Noel Coward's comedy about a spirited love triangle, novelist Charles Condomine accidentally summons the spirit of his late first wife, Elvira, during a séance conducted by the gleefully eccentric Madame Arcati. Trouble is, only Charles can see Elvira, who proceeds to wreak havoc on Charles' current marriage to the jealous Ruth. When Ruth meets her accidental demise, her spirit teams up with that of Elvira and then the haunted fun really begins. A hit during its premiere in 1941 and adapted into an Oscar-winning 1945 film with Rex Harrison, Blithe Spirit
represents Coward at his driest and most urbane. Spend a pleasant evening under the stars as Cal Shakes presents this ghostly audience favorite at Bruns Amphitheater, called "one of the most beautiful outdoor performing spaces in America" by the Wall Street Journal
. Renowned Bay Area actor René Augesen makes her Cal Shakes debut as Ruth Condomine.
