From the show:
Blithe Spirit centers on a séance hosted by a novelist and attended by his second wife. When wife #1, now deceased, also shows up, the fun begins.

Coward adapted the play for a 1945 film starring Rex Harrison, and directed a Broadway musical adaptation, High Spirits, in 1964. The play has been adapted for radio and television and last played on Broadway in 2009. Another film version, starting Judi Dench and Dan Stevens, will be in production soon.
