Matinee Classics – Tickets available from £1.75

A cynical writer (Rex Harrison) invites a local medium (Margaret Rutherford) to hold a seance in his home, hoping it will provide material for a book he is writing. She only succeeds in conjuring up the ghost of his flirtatious first wife, who proceeds to make life unbearable for his second wife. Based on Coward’s 1941 play that broke theatrical records and is still his most revived. This was the last of the famous collaborations between David Lean, Antony Havelock -Allen, Ronald Neame and Noel. Also starring Constance Cummings and Kay Hammond.
