NOEL COWARD'S "HAY FEVER"
Judith Bliss, once a glittering star of the London stage, is now in early retirement, but is still enjoying life with more than a little high drama. To spice up her weekend, she invites a young admirer to join her in the country. However, her novelist husband David and her two spoilt children, Sorel and Simon, have had the same idea for themselves, and any hope for private flirtation disappears as the family’s guests begin to arrive. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and shocking revelations all run riot at the most outrageous of all house parties.
Noël Coward’s sublime comedy of bad manners was written in 1924 and was inspired by a weekend visit that Coward made to the home of an American playwright and his eccentric actress wife. The Daily Telegraph recently called it “one of the finest comedies in the English language”.
