Hay Fever

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

Written by Noel Coward

Directed by Colin Lewis Edwards

Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with some guests, David Bliss, a novelist and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children Simon and Sorel appear with guests of their own. A housefull of drama waits to be ignited as misunderstandings and tempers flare. With Judith’s new flame and David’s newest literary ‘inspiration’ keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the ‘quiet weekend’ comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale worthy of Feydeau.
