Sub-titled “an improbable farce” this play dwells none-too-seriously on what could be called the darker side of life. Charles Condomine is an aspiring author who needs to complete research for his latest novel. To this end he invites a local medium – the eccentric Madame Arcati – to dinner, so that he can watch her at work. Unaware of any ulterior motive Madame Arcati performs hilariously to the best of her ability, but leaves Charles with a problem that turns his original care-free scepticism into abject dismay...
