Judith Bliss, once glittering star of the London stage, now in early retirement, is still enjoying life with more than a little high drama. To spice her weekend up, Judith invites a young suitor to join her in the country. However, her novelist husband, and her two eccentric children have had the same idea for themselves and any hope for private flirtation disappears as the family’s guests begin to arrive.
Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and scandalous revelations all run riot at the most outrageous of all house parties.
Howard Davies directs Lindsay Duncan in Coward’s Hay Fever, reuniting the director and actor who together received seven major international theatre awards for their 2001 collaboration on Coward’s Private Lives.
Duncan is joined by Jeremy Northam, Kevin McNally and Olivia Coleman in Coward’s sublime comedy of bad manners.
