Author Charles Condomine organizes a séance to gather material for a new book he is writing. As an unexpected consequence, eccentric medium Madame Arcati manages to conjure up the spirit of Charles’ first wife, Elvira. Elvira is visible (and audible) only to Charles, so it is difficult for his current wife to accept that Charles hasn’t gone mad. Elvira enjoys making mischief but goes too far.

This is Noel Coward at his best.
