Hay Fever

by Noel Coward

An English country house by the Thames at Cookham in the 1920s.

Without consulting the others, the four eccentric members of the Bliss family each invite a guest to spend the weekend. The self-centered behaviour of the hosts finally drives the guests to flee, while the Blisses are so engaged in a family row that they don’t notice.

Noel Coward combines a comedy of manners, as each guest pairs off with the wrong person, with his inimitable wit in which every word falls perfectly into place.
