Harold Pinter Theatre
4.5 out of 5.0 stars
Oh, what a fun show this was! I wasn’t really sure what to expect, I often just buy theatre tickets without looking into a show synopsis or even knowing what genre it would be. I love going into media without any expectations or spoilers!
Blithe Spirit absolutely surprised me in the best way possible, being an insanely hilarious show. But here’s a short description of the show for you: Writer Charles Condomine wants to get some real world experiences of what he believes to be absolutely fraudulent mediums, so he hires Madame Arcati to host a séance at his home. But this medium turns out to be the real deal, and his late first wife starts haunting him, trying to sabotage his new marriage. A series of hilarious hi-jinks ensue. I absolutely loved this show, so packed full of surprising wit and funny mishaps.
I hadn’t laughed so much in quite a while and am so glad I got to see it! If you need a good laugh, Blithe Spirit is absolutely for you!
