This play by Alan Ayckbourn is the third of a trilogy called Things That Go Bump, about a recently bereaved widow, whose late husband just won’t leave her alone. Ayckbourn felt it was like Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.

Alan Ayckbourn's play Life and Beth is being performed at The Barn Theatre, Little Easton on October 10, 11 and 12, with supper included on the last two nights.

The play is the third of a trilogy called Things That Go Bump, about a recently bereaved widow, Beth, troubled by her family's misguided support and a late husband who won't leave her alone.
