A Ghostly Comedy
The beloved smash hit of the London and Broadway stages conjures its way to North Coast Rep for a spirited and hilarious evening in Noël Coward’s BLITHE SPIRIT. A socialite novelist, an eccentric medium, an unforgiving ex-wife and a shrewish spouse create supernatural hijinks in this world-class comedy. You are summoned for an otherworldly evening of theatre overflowing with wit, sophistication and effervescent fun.

What the Critics Are Saying
Director Rosina Reynolds has infused it with a new zany quality that only adds to its original comic allure….A superb cast holds forth with stunning characterizations.
- San Diego Reader
The deft performances from director Reynold’s seasoned cast of pros elevate the already top-tier production elements. The cast is always in their on-stage moments. Steady eye contact along with terrific timing and pacing make this production such a joy to watch while waiting for the next comedy shoe to drop from this flawless ensemble cast. Once again, the creative and inventive directorial touches of Ms. Reynolds win the day.
- Jack Lyons, Desert Local News
Director Rosina Reynolds, a master of British farce who keeps Coward’s witty, fast-paced repartee flying and has fielded a strong cast.
- Pam Kragen, The San Diego Union~Tribune
North Coast Rep latest production, for the start of their 37th season, is a witty, clever, and humorously ghostly Noel Coward comedy, ‘Blithe Spirit’.
