Blithe Spirit at Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall

Join the Caerphilly Players Amateur Dramatics Group for a frighteningly funny performance of Blithe Spirit.

Set in the 1940s, the story follows novelist, Charles Condomine, who stages a seance with the help of eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madam Arcati. It all takes a turn for the worst when the seance brings back the ghost of Mr Condomine’s dead ex-wife, Elvira and Charles is the only one who can see her. Scarily good fun for this Halloween!

To help you along with your scary decisions, here is The Big Phill Guide to Halloween in the cackling county of Caerphilly.
