After inadvertently summoning the ghost of his dead wife, Charles must defend his new (and living) wife from this vengeful and hot-tempered spirit. Watch the jealousies fly in one of theatre’s most notorious cat-fights, complete with the sophisticated humor of one of Britain’s wittiest playwrights!
