Calendar Pick: Blithe Spirit

Everyone experiences writer’s block. I’m experiencing it right now. Well, there are a few methods that writers and artists have used throughout the years to overcome the pesky thing. Some people lean into it, and write about writer’s block. Others take a step back, and come at something from a new angle, or drop a concept entirely and start over. Very few, and I mean very few, writers conduct a seance in hopes of contacting their deceased ex-wife to mine her for story material. The main character in Blithe Spirit, a play by Noël Coward and directed by William McGregor at On Stage Playhouse, decides to do just that. Predictably, this causes issues between him and his now-wife of five years, and hilarity ensues. This community theater production will be running multiple dates through the month of October: Oct. 14–15 and Oct. 21–22 at 8 p.m., Oct. 16 and Oct. 23 at 2 p.m., and a half-price show Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m.
