A Hauntingly Hilarious Tale Comes to The Blue Room

Noel Coward’s wonderful farce, Blithe Spirit, is set to bring the house down, literally in fact.

The Asylum Players summer show hits The Blue Room this July, directed by Peggy Reading, this piece is sure to set audiences laughing from start to finish.

The Blue Room is an iconic and historical venue situated in uphill Lincoln near the castle. It has played host to many critically acclaimed shows and events.

On the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of July, join us for Coward’s trademark wit and social observation, coupled to sarcastic ghosts and mad mediums.

Steve Gillard, Artistic Director of The Asylum Players said: “Noel Coward is always such fun to put on, particularly Blithe Spirit. It doesn’t matter how old the audience is, there’s comedy for all. Arch wit and dry asides, mixed with slapstick and flying furniture.”

Written by Noel Coward in 1941, Blithe Spirit tells the story of Charles Condomine, a socialite and writer with his new wife, Ruth, as they play host to a spiritual medium, Madame Arcarti. What sets out as a ploy to discover the tricks of the ‘spiritual trade,’ rapidly transforms into a social nightmare when the ghost of Elvira, Charles’ recently deceased, extremely temperamental, former wife is accidentally conjured up. What precisely is the social etiquette when your extremely ex-wife refuses to leave?   

This thoroughly spirited, (pun intended) production, featuring many of the stalwarts of The Asylum Players, promises a fun evening of belly laughs.
