    Ms Geeson at her finest

    This was always one of my favourite plays – I loved it having seen the David Lean film version when I was a child. But much as I love the film, it cannot hold a candle to this marvellous production. For a start it is exceptionally well cast. Ian Ogilvie is perfectly cast as the misogynistic but still sympathetic Charles Condomine – confused and then bemused by the appearance of his first wife, Elvira from beyond the grave. But the star of the show is undoubtedly Judy Geeson who steals every scene that she appears in with just the right touches of emotion, humour and downright devilishness. Her vowel sounds are a joy – I could listen to her speak for hours!
    The story is simple but an absolute joy. This is without a doubt my favourite radio play in my vast collection!

    Well presented classic theatre

    Noel Coward is a playwright with timeless wit -- in both the dialogue and the plot.
    Blithe Spirit is a somewhat cheeky comedy, exploring reactions to the deceased wife (the blithe spirit) talking to the remarried spouse via a wonderfully portrayed clairvoyant and spirit medium.
    Coward is the epitome of the English playwright and the actors in this production are highly regarded British actors. I enjoyed the audience's reaction -- for me the immediacy of the theatre certainly added to the quality of the listening experience.

    A Dry Martini for the ears.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, just as an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

    What about the narrators???s performance did you like?

    They are all accomplished actors. The voices are different enough to easily distinguish them. It is a light and frothy play.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it is short and we were driving a long way.

    Any additional comments?

    A polished and elegant performance of a play written by a very clever wordsmith.

    Be careful what you wish for

    Fun screwball comedy about a writer who invites a medium over to get information for his book. During the séance he unwittingly calls back his dead wife. He's the only one who can see her, causing chaos.

    I watched the movie shortly after listening to this performance. Listen to this, and skip the movie.

    Classic Coward

    What made the experience of listening to Blithe Spirit the most enjoyable?

    Each character is well portrayed, the timing is great and I'm really glad they have British accents.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles Condomine is such a cad, but in such a devilish way.

    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Elvira, so conniving and so transparent

    Lovely Production

    Any additional comments?

    This was a charming production of a very funny play. The acting was wonderful with characters who were at once infuriating and endearing. The live audience was a great addition to this audio experience as were the occasional sound effects. Overall, a great play well done.

    What fun!

    I felt it was a real treat to listen to professionals really bring this to life.

    The story is wonderful and has been re-imagined many times over the years to greater and lesser degrees of success. It is a treat to sit down with a comedy of this sort and just enjoy its beauty.
