A shadow (or perhaps it should be a shade?) falls upon the household of Charles Condomine, well-to-do writer, and his wife Ruth after a local medium, Madame Arcati, is invited to hold a seance. Charles is actually a sceptic in matters ofthe spirit world. He is in fact researching for his nextbook" The unseen" and asks his neighbours, the Bradmans, to assist him in his bid for inside information. Although the Condomine's invited guests all leave amused, but unimpressed, one very unex­pected visitor remains behind. But we must let the actors continue this story and we hope that you enjoy Noel Coward's entertaining play as so many audiences have done before.

A play in three Acts.
