A comedy by Noel Coward, described by the author as ‘an improbable farce in thee acts’.

Novelist Charles Condomine invites the eccentric Medium and Clairvoyant, Madam Arcati to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book.

The scheme backfires however, when the ghost of Condomine’s first wife, Elvera, comes back causing disruption and ghostly unrest into his life and that of his current wife, Ruth.
