Hay Fever is a comic play written by Noël Coward in 1924 and first produced in 1925. A cross between high farce and a comedy of manners (it has been called "a comedy of bad 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 guest to spend the weekend. Their treatment of their hapless guests causes them to flee while the Blisses are so engaged in a family row that they do not notice their guests' furtive departure. There are 9 characters (5F; 4M), covering ages from 20 to 50, and they are all substantial and fun to perform.
We will be hosting a reading of Hay Fever at Shottermill Club, 2 Liphook Road, Haslemere next Wednesday 20 April starting at 7:30 pm. All are very welcome whether it be to read or simply enjoy the evening. See you there.
