Blithe Spirit - 20 to 25 April

(performances 7.30pm - 25 April 2.30pm matinee and 7.30pm)

By Noël Coward

Directed by Stephanie Austin

(A TOADS season production)


A ghostly comedy - Blithe Spirit is a comic play by Noël Coward. The play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine. In order to gain research material for a new novel, Charles engages Madame Arcati, a spiritual medium and clairvoyant of uncertain talent, to conduct a séance in his home. Quite by accident, Arcati summons the spirit of Charles’ temperamental
first wife Elvira, and of course is quite unable to make the disruptive spirit go away. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’ marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who can neither see nor hear the ghost.



The Passing of the Third Floor Back - 18 to 23 May

(performances 7.30pm - 23 May 2.30pm matinee and 7.30pm)

By Jerome K Jerome

Directed by Andrew Kenyon

(A TOADS season production)


An idle fancy, in a prologue, a play and an epilogue - The residents of Mrs Sharpe’s lodgings at 13 Bloomsbury Place are a group of disgruntled and resentful boarders who bicker and snipe from dawn to dusk. Into this mix of malcontents comes a stranger who takes a room on the third floor back - and to whom they take an instant dislike. Yet, one by one, each of them are struck by his gentle disposition and honest simplicity. When he departs - as mysteriously as he had arrived - they are no closer to knowing who he was or from whence he came; but his visit has changed their approach to life forever…

By Ray Cooney

Directed by Alan Tanner

Hilarious innuendo and cruelly funny turns of fate ensue as Henry and his wife assume various identities in their battle to keep the money.
