Preview: ‘Blithe Spirit’ at Sierra Stages
Things get pretty spooky in Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit, now showing at Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. When author Charles Condomine decides to hold a séance to learn more about the occult, things actually go pretty well. At least, until Charles finds out afterwards that his dead wife, Elvira was summoned. Charles’ marriage to his second wife, Ruth, is systematically disrupted as Elvira takes it upon herself to haunt the two. It happens to everyone. Guess that’s just one of the perks of marriage.
