About the Play
Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a novel he is writing so arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house.  At the séance she inadvertently summons Charles’s first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for several years. 
 
Elvira haunts Charles and makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles’s marriage to his second wife Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.  Can Madame Arcarti exorcise this ethereal being and what, if anything, has this do to with the maid?

Description

The Theydon Bois Village Hall is run by The Theydon Bois Village Association and is a modern purpose built hall that was seven years in the planing and was completed in November 2001. It replaces the previous Village Hall built in 1966 that stood on the site of the present hall's car park.

The Village Association is a charity with the main objectives of:-
Providing facilities for recreation and leisure for the villagers establishing, maintaining & managing a Village Hall.

The Association was formed in 1943 and is still going strong today in satisfying these objectives. Membership is open to all inhabitants of the village as well as any group or society operating within the village. There are currently about 30 such affiliated groups, each of whom provide a Trustee who, together with the Honorary Officers of the Association, are responsible for maintenance and management of the Hall. The day-to-day running of the Association is delegated to an Executive Committee, consisting of the Officers, 10 other Trustees and a Parish Council representative.

The Village Hall is pleasantly situated in the heart of the village of Theydon Bois, on Coppice Row, (the B172) postcode CM16 7ER - opposite the Village Green, it has rooms to suit many uses and a patio and grassed area to the rear. The hall and large car park have been landscaped to blend it into the village environment as symparthetically as possible.

A large number of people within the village and surrounding areas use the Hall, many are members of Village organizations that are affiliated to the Village Association such as the Theydon Bois Women’s Institute, Art Group, Seniors, Music Society, Singers Group and the District Rural Preservation Society etc.

Others use the Hall to play Bowls (there is a daytime Club as well as an evening section) and Badminton. There are also Keep Fit, Yoga and Country Dancing sessions and Weightwatchers.

The University of the Third Age holds a number of courses at the Hall as well as a monthly lecture; and the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts have a local group which meets once a month.

The Theydon Bois Drama Society puts on three or four productions each year. Theydon-based committees of Charities such as the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, the NSPCC, St. Clares Hospice and Homestart are regular users of the Village Hall for fundraising events.

The Village Hall comprises one large function room (the Oak Room) capable of seating 200 people (theatre style); one medium sized room (the Beech Room) for smaller functions, meetings, classes etc. and a small room (the Poplar Room) which can accommodate seminars, classes etc. The Beech & Poplar Rooms can be combined to form a small hall accommodating 80 people . Also available at the rear of the building are two multipurpose rooms one of which (the Hornbeam Room) is let to a Montessori Nursery School during the mornings and some afternoons in school-term time. The Holly Room also at the rear of the building is available during the week for small groups of about 20 people.
