Blithe Spirit

Are you ready for some dazzlingly funny comedy from Noel Coward, dating back to 1941 but just as hilarious as ever? You're in for a treat thanks to Theatre Royal Bath Productions, Lee Dean and Jonathan Church Theatre Productions, all of whom are thrilled to announce the West End return of Noël Coward’s classic comedy Blithe Spirit, directed by Sir Richard Eyre and starring Jennifer Saunders. It's back on stage after a sell-out run at Theatre Royal Bath in 2019 plus a UK tour and a short run in London of just 12 performances... then covid hit, and it shut down. Now it's back for an eight week run at the Harold Pinter theatre.

This is a wickedly funny, inventive, witty and meticulously engineered comedy. It delivered badly-needed relief in 1941 as war raged across the planet. The show enjoyed a record breaking run in the West End and the same on Broadway. Now, eighty years later, it is still one of the playwright’s most popular plays. Sir Richard Eyre directs, Anthony Ward is is the designer, Howard Harrison, winner of two Oliviers, is the lighting designer and another award winner, John Leonard, has designed the sound. The fantastic Paul Kieve, well-loved international illusionist, makes the magic. Fabulous!

A great version of this terrifiç play.
A great play but as we are older the only seats available were not the best. Worth booking earlier and buying better seats.

A must see
Perfect adaptation of Noel Cowards play ! No scenery changes so very quick turnaround in acts ! I did however feel that “Edith” overacted a teeny tiny little bit! But perhaps this was the director’s intention. A great night out!

Great Fun I Write !
Dame Angela Lansbury is a legend and she and the whole cast delivered a wonderful couple of hours that will live long in the memory. Thankyou to all the cast but especially Dame Angela - you are fantastic.

Phenominal Dame Angela
Brilliant to see Angela Lansbury in a live play. She played the dottie Madame Arcarti to perfection. I hope I have her energy when I am 88! She's phenominal and as we went on a Saturday, she had 2 performances not one. Only downside, she was too tired to come out and sign programmes when she has 2 performances. Heyho, but never mined. I've seen her on stage! There really is nothing like a Dame Angela!

Lift your Spirits
My advice would be to definitely go and see this show. It is a wonderfully produced adaptation, with performances of the cast to match. Thoroughly enjoyable - would see it again, given the chance!

Good story, good theatre, brilliant actors
We enjoyed our night in the theatre a lot. Angela Lansbury was marvellous! It's difficult to believe she is 88. The story itself is very funny and we laughed our head's off.
