Our November

production:

Hay Fever by Noel

Coward

”Of the many plays that have been written about impossible guests, Coward’s is one of that select band that deals with nightmare hosts. A country weekend in Cookham with the theatrical family Biiss proves about as seductive as supper with the Macbeths, or cocktails with George and Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But Coward’s comedy also combines neat symmetry, as each guest pairs off with the wrong person, with slim dialogue in which every word falls perfectly into place. When Juidith Bliss says of her husband, “No, he’s not dead, he’s upstairs,” the laugh derives both from her crisp dismissal and that final hard consonant that Neil Simon said was indispensable in comedy.”              The Guardian Review of Hay Fever with Felicity Kendal.
