Play Synopsis:


Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a novel he is writing, and he arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. At the séance, she inadvertently summons Charles's first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years. Madame Arcati leaves after the séance, unaware that she has summoned Elvira. Only Charles can see or hear Elvira, and his second wife, Ruth, does not believe that Elvira exists until a floating vase is handed to her out of thin air. The ghostly Elvira makes continued, and increasingly desperate, efforts to disrupt Charles's current marriage. She finally sabotages his car in the hope of killing him so that he will join her in the spirit world, but it is Ruth rather than Charles who drives off and is killed. Now haunted by two ghosts Charles has Madame Arcati exorcise the spirits and Charles abandons the house to the ghosts who madly pull it apart.

Characters: Cast 7 - 5 Female & 2 Male


Ruth, 30 – 45, charming, witty warm & funny, but readily driven to distraction by the haunting

Edith, 18 – 25, a young woman in her first job as a maid. Extremely energetic, awkward and excitable.     A fun part with

very few lines, but a wonderful presence.

Charles, 40 – 60, urbane, witty, able to deal with any situation he thinks, but comes undone by having to juggle two wives at the same time, one a ghost and the other very much alive.                                                                                    

Mrs. Bradman,             40 – 60, easily distracted but very sincere, unwittingly funny because of her naivety and sincerety.

Dr. Bradman, 40 – 60, highly skeptical, amusingly caught up in his own importance and has trouble being discreet and kind, although not deliberately cruel, is a very funny character.

Madame Arcati, 50 – 70, wonderfully sincere, kind, energetic and full of surprises.                                                                                                           

Elvira, 25 – 40, playful, deceitful, menacing, but full of fun.
