Hay Fever

A Classic Comedy by Noel Coward

Directed by Rainer Noack
Produced by Trevor Bonanno
Set by Trevor Bonanno

The Bliss family – recently-retired Judith, the once glittering star of the London stage; David, an egocentric novelist; and Sorel and Simon, their two Bohemian adult children – are incapable of sharing the spotlight. Unconventional, risqué, and often downright rude, they are everything a respectable English family should not be. When each member of the family invites a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors are thrown into a living melodrama. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and scandalous revelations proliferate during one outrageous weekend in Berkshire.

Noël Coward’s hilarious comedy of bad manners has been a favourite amongst theatregoers ever since it first dazzled London’s West End in 1925.
