Blithe Spirit announces full cast; Jennifer Saunders returns

The full cast of Noël Coward's Blithe Sprit, running at the Harold Pinter Theatre from next month, has been revealed today.

The previously announced Jennifer Saunders revives her role as the preposterous clairvoyant Madame Arcati. She is joined by original cast members Geoffrey Streatfeild who will star as Charles Condomine, Lisa Dillon as Ruth Condomine, Simon Coates as Dr Bradman, Lucy Robinson as Mrs Bradman, and Rose Wardlaw as Edith. The cast is completed with the announcement of Madeleine Mantcock who will play Elvira.

The production originally opened Theatre Royal Bath’s 2019 Summer Season and is directed by former National Theatre director Sir Richard Eyre with design by Anthony Ward, lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by John Leonard and illusions by Paul Kieve. The Sunday Times described Saunders' performance as "a brilliantly physical display of comic clowning."

Blithe Spirit plays from 16 September to 6 November.
