Synopsis: A skeptical novelist, Charles Condomine, invites a self-proclaimed medium, Madame Arcati, to his home for a séance; hoping to gather material for a new book. When the hapless psychic accidentally summons the spirit of Condomine’s late wife, Elvira, his home and life are quickly turned into a shambles as his wife’s ghost torments both him and his new bride. Characters: 5 women, 2 men
Charles Condomine is a wealthy, successful novelist. In order to learn about the occult, the subject of his next book, he invites an eccentric medium to conduct a séance at his quiet country home in Kent.
Ruth Condomine is Charles’s second wife. She is charming, strong willed and obsessively curious about her husband’s relationship with his deceased first wife, Elvira.
Elvira is Charles Condomine’s deceased first wife. Flirtatious, conniving and catty, she uses every trick in the book to disrupt Charles’s current marriage and torment Ruth because she wants Charles all to herself.
Madame Arcati , the psychic, is the guest of honor at the Condomine’s country home. Eccentric, effusive and boisterous. (Physical comedy required.)
Edith is the Condomine’s new maid. She is nervous and tears around at break-neck speed trying to do things right and make a good impression.
Dr. George Bradman is a good friend of the Condomines. He is entirely skeptical of anything to do with the occult, but tries his utmost to go along with the proceedings for the sake of Charles’s research.
Violet Bradman is Dr. Bradman’s wife. Simple and naive, she is quite excited about being in the presence of the medium, whom she finds fascinating.
