Beat the winter blahs by taking in a hilarious comedy of bad manners set in a 1920s English country house. Hay Fever tells the comical tale of retired actress Judith Bliss, her novelist husband and their two avant-garde adult children. Each member of the family has invited a guest to the family home for the weekend. As the guests gather, it quickly becomes evident that eccentricities abound and personalities clash, leaving the occupants of the home to wonder if the have been sentenced to a weekend in the madhouse. The play is written by Noel Coward, directed by James Daniels, and features a stellar local cast comprised of Asne Vigesaa, Stella Cole, Roy Pyers, Nicole Sylvester and more.
