Director Erik Tonner returns to The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts to direct Noel Coward’s classic farce about life & the ­after-life. He directed last year's popular production of "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change". Previous TBTA directing credits include "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Godspell", and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". Erik describes "Blithe Spirit" as "a bit like a cross between Monty Python & Downton Abbey."

The play begins when Charles Condomine, a writer, decides to hold a seance as research for a new book. An amusing evening takes an unwitting turn when the ghost of his ex-wife appears. Charles is startled by the apparition. His new wife, Ruth, has a different reaction.....

"Blithe Spirit" was written and originally performed during the London Blitz (WWII) and was an instant success. Its send up of death and the spirit world appealed to the war weary British. The play continues to resonate in the current day as witnessed by the recent revivals on both sides of the Atlantic. With physical comedy and sharp wit, Coward leads the audience from a simple dinner party to a world of chaos where nothing is as it seems.
