A 1920s comedy by Noel Coward
Directed by Julian Harrison

Hay Fever is a comedy written by Noel Coward and is best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners. The play is set in an English country house in the 1920s and deals with the four eccentric members of the Bliss family and their outlandish behaviour when they each invite a prospective lover to spend the weekend- unbeknownst to the others.

The Blisses and their two equally unconventional children live in a world where reality slides into fiction. Upon entering this world, the unfortunate weekend guests are repeatedly thrown into melodramatic scenes wherein their hosts profess emotions and react to situations that do not really exist. The resulting comedic chaos only ends when the tortured visitors tip-toe out the door.

Book now for froth and frivolity on a cold Winter's evening or afternoon. Company Theatre at The Rose Centre promises a talented cast, period set and sumptuous costumes and the warmest of welcomes.
