Our next production



If you happen to be driving past the Playstation, searching in vain for a train at the now somewhat ghostly Totnes Station, you may become aware of strange subdued moaning, boards creaking, a sudden gust of cold wind, or even an ectoplasmic manifestation. Worry not. It is the cast and crew of ‘Blithe Spirit’ working hard to do justice to Noel Coward’s wonderfully funny play. Don’t miss it!

Mrs Condomine – Gina Carter

Mr Condomine – James Harper

Edith, the maid – Katie Bottoms

Dr Bradman – Gordon Frow

Mrs Bradman – Wendy Franklin

Madame Arcati – Di Goodey

Elvira – Ceni Wyatt



Stage management – Rachel Scholefield with Pete O’Keefe, Roberta Fuller

Charles and Ruth  Condomine hold a séance with Madame Arcati in which Elvira, Charles’ first wife, materialises.  Also present are Dr and Mrs Bradman.  No-one (in the cast) can see Elvira  except Charles.  She is hell-bent on getting Charles to join her in the spirit world.  Accidents occur, including one to the maid, Edith.  But it is Ruth who “dies”, not Charles, and the two jealous ghosts squabble until Madame Arcati  finally disembodies them, but she doesn’t get rid of them altogether.




Ceni Wyatt as Elvira - having a smashing time
