In this hilarious comedy by Noël Coward, a cynical writer doing research invites an eccentric clairvoyant to his home to conduct a séance. But the plot thickens when he finds himself haunted by the ghost of his beautiful and petulant first wife. David Gilmore, who has directed more than a dozen productions in Londons West End, makes his Rubicon debut with this production.
