Noël Coward's wonderfully witty smash comedy

manifests itself at The Barn Theatre.

A lighthearted 1940s romp, Blithe Spirit concerns novelist Charles Condomine as he invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, into his home. Charles has arranged a séance, in order to gather material for his next book on the occult. His plan backfires when the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, is conjured up. Elvira makes continual and amusing attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth - with unpredictable consequences.

Jessica Swale's BLUE STOCKINGS

Set at Girton College, Cambridge in 1896. The action involves four talented female undergraduates and the campaign to be allowed to receive the same formal degree as their male colleagues. The play touches on issues surrounding the feminist ideals of the late 19th century New Woman - equal education rights, sexual autonomy, and political enfranchisement.
Directed by Harry Atkinson

Five very different women sign up for pole dancing classes at the local village hall - each of them with their own reasons for taking up pole dancing. When one of the women receives devastating news, the others soon pull together and decide to turn their new skill into a fund raising event. As each of the women’s stories unfolds, they share laughter and tears in this hilarious, sad and ultimately moving play, a call to all women, celebrating strength through adversity.

Reclusive siblings Peppy and Daniel live in a house stuffed full of everything they have ever owned. Their eccentric appearance and reclusive lifestyle means they are not like others on their road. When young neighbour Ben from next door comes visiting, looking for friendship, what happens next challenges everyone's idea of tolerance. A tender, dark and funny look at co-dependency, anxiety, and living alongside those who are different from us.
