A South West theatre will host Blithe Spirit starring Absolutely Fabulous actor Jennifer Saunders until next month.
The actor, also stars in French and Saunders, will play the 'eccentric' clairvoyant Madame Arcati in the adaptation of the 1940s production.
The play delves into the lives of novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth's hunted house, where Arcati conjures up the ghost of Charles' 'neurotic' first wife Elvira at a séance.
Originally written and directed by Noel Coward in a 'flush of supernatural inspiration' in 1941, Blithe Spirit instantly enjoyed a record-breaking run in the West End which transferred to Broadway shortly after.
Blithe Spirit will be performed at Bath's Theatre Royal Bath, in Saw Close, until July 6 with evening and matinee shows.
Tickets, priced from £33.25, are available at www.theatreroyal.org.uk or the box office on 01225 448844.
