About the Play 
As research for his next novel, Charles Condomine engages a medium, Madame Arcati, to conduct a séance, which inadvertently raises the ghost of his late wife, Elvira. For Charles’s current wife, Ruth, Elvira’s presence is no laughing matter, particularly since Elvira seems eager to reclaim her former husband – either in this world or the next.
