The City Players have an unerring knack of choosing just the right plays to perform and in Noel Coward’s 1940s’ Blithe Spirit they opted for one which displayed their talents in abundance.

A wonderfully detailed set full of small but pertinent period features depicts the country home of successful novelist Charles Condomine (Matthew Joynes) and his second wife, Ruth (an excellent performance by Lara Huddless in her first role with the group).

The action revolves around Charles’ desire to obtain information for his latest novel from Madame Arcati (a wonderfully engaging performance from Anne Wing as the eccentric medium).
