Are you ready for the spookiest season of the year? Let us bring you laughs and frights with this classic, creepy comedy. Based in the 1940’s, this comedy follows novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth, as they muddle through marital troubles, staff etiquette and pranking their local medium. Charles Condomine believed it would be a suitable evening for a séance at his house with his wife, and some family friends. Little does he know, eccentric medium Madame Arcati, is more powerful than ever could have imagined. His previous wife has been summoned back from the abyss and only he can see or hear her. Can he contain his appealing and spectral wife from destroying the new life he’s built with his current wife, Ruth? Or will his life come crashing down around him? Suitable for older children upwards, and don’t miss the Relaxed Performance 3.30 pm October 24 at the Anvil Centre presented in partnership with the Massey Theatre Society. RCTC is the only theatre company outside of Vancouver to present theatre specifically designed for those with intellectual or other challenges.
