Kindred Spirits a new play by Alice Scovell, based on the characters and story of Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit"

August 2 - August 18, 2024

In this World Premiere sequel to Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit, the whimsical chaos of the spirit world collides, once again, with the realm of the living. Haunted by his past loves (literally), Charles Condomine finds it challenging to finish his latest book and pursue a beguiling love interest. Romance, jealousy, and unexpected reunions combine for a spirited, comedic romp, filled with witty repartee and otherworldly surprises. In Kindred Spirits, Alice Scovell--the playwright behind the Oscar Wilde sequel The Rewards of Being Frank--brings back to life many of Coward’s beloved characters, and introduces a few new, memorable ones.
