John Van Druten's literally bewitching stage comedy Bell Book and Candle follows an incredible storyline. Gillian Holroyd, a genuine, bonafide witch falls in love with publisher Sheperd Henderson. Gillian casts a spell on him, obliging him to dump his fiancée and rush to her side. All of this goes against the grain of Gillian's Endora-like mentor Mrs. De Pass, who does her best to counteract the love spell. Meanwhile, Gillian's wacky warlock brother Nicky courts disaster by coauthoring a book on black magic with pompous, bibulous novelist Sidney Redlitch.
