Hay Fever

by Noel Coward
Opening Night 15 February 2001
Director: Louise Petherbridge

The action of the play takes place in just one weekend, in the country in the home of what today might almost be called a dysfunctional family. Mother is a ‘resting’ actress, father a successful novelist, son a would-be artist and daughter a teenager who does nothing but knows it all. Each, unknown to the others, has invited a special "friend" to spend the weekend in their home. During the weekend, however, these alliances shift, precipitating the action to a conclusion that could be summarised as “the family that fights together stays together!”
