Charles plans a séance as research for his new book. He invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcati into his English country home intending to expose her as a fraud. To witness this event, Charles and his second wife, Ruth, invite the sceptical Dr. Bradman and his anxious-to-believe wife, Violet. In the course of the séance things get thoroughly out of hand.
“A boisterous theatrical classic from the pen of an English wit. A séance that leads to the most unusual and unlikely ménage a trois in the history of the stage.”
Madame Arcati
