In a first for Radio 4, Ambridge's Queen of Am Dram, Lynda Snell, brings a ghostly chill to this year's Christmas Production as she directs and stars in Coward's classic wartime comedy. Joined by Julian Rhind-Tutt, Eleanor Bron, Michael Cochrane and other members of THE ARCHERS cast, Lynda finds much sympathy with the eccentric medium Madame Arcati and her efforts to conjure some seasonal high spirits. Novelist Charles Condomine is researching a book about a fake medium. But has he bitten off more than he can chew when his dead wife is summoned from beyond the grave?

Adapted and directed by Sean O'Connor.
