We are all in need of a laugh. Here is your chance with Noël Coward’s witty comedy Hay Fever, online.BAT Hay Fever square small

This comedy follows the eccentric Bliss family during a weekend of misdirection that is anything but relaxing for their unsuspecting guests.

Hay Fever is a hilarious primer on how not to entertain visitors.

Judith Bliss, a recently retired actress for whom all the world is a stage, never met a moment she couldn’t turn the spotlight on herself. When her self-absorbed progeny—Sorel and Simon—argue in her presence, Judith manages to divert their attention to her needs, which are bottomless.

Judith invites a devoted fan, a strapping young boxer Sandy Tyrell, to the Bliss country home for a bit of flirting. She is not amused to discover that her daughter, Sorel, has asked an older man, the assured diplomat Richard Greatham, for the weekend. Meanwhile, Simon has arranged for his crush, Myra Arundel, to come over for a cuddle. Completing the guestlist, novelist father David Bliss, has invited flapper Jackie Coryton to the house for “research purposes.”

The housekeeper, Clara, frets about running out of rooms and food for the unexpected guests. The mischief escalates as the romantic pairings keep changing and the Blisses’ familial rivalries intensify.
