Hay Fever

22 June – 27 July 2024

Written by Noel Coward

Directed by Jason Darlington

The Bliss family is anything but blissful as a quiet weekend away is turned upside down by a series of unexpected guests. This is Noel Coward’s classic brought to life in all its period glory.

Novelist David Bliss and his wife Judith, a retired actress, retreat to their country house for a quiet weekend. Unbeknownst to each other, they have each invited a potential romantic interest to join them for the weekend. To add fuel to the fire, the high-spirited Bliss children, Simon and Sorel, also appear at the home, along with a few guests of their own. As tempers flare and the Bliss’s behaviour becomes increasingly outrageous, their guests must decide whether to bask in the exhilarating antics of their hosts or to make quick their escape to avoid the madness.
