Hayfever is a wonderfully amusing play written by esteemed writer Noël Coward. Howard Davies directs Lindsay Duncan, who is joined by Jeremy Northam, Kevin R McNally and Olivia Colman in Coward’s sublime comedy of bad manners. 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 inthe 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 evelations all run riot at the most outrageous of all house parties.
