HAY FEVER to be part of the Sydney Theatre Company’s 2016 Season.

Sydney Theatre Company presents Hay Fever by Noël Coward
Ignorance is bliss
Deliciously funny comedies were Noël Coward’s forte. In Hay Fever, he delivered a sure-fire hit full of secret seductions, misjudged meetings and wicked revelations wrapped around a portrait of a very theatrical family.
The Blisses love intrigue, love arguing and really love a spotlight. Led by Heather Mitchell as Judith Bliss, the prima donna to end all prima donnas, they are everything a respectable British family ought not to be – unconventional, uncensored and unapologetic. When each of them decides to invite a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors face a living melodrama from which there seems to be no escape.
Having had us in hysterics with After Dinner in 2015, director Imara Savage and designer Alicia Clements reunite to give us a 1920s country weekend like no other.
With an exceptional cast, including Harriet Dyer (Travelling North), Tony Llewellyn-Jones (Amigos) and Helen Thomson (After Dinner), Hay Fever promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable and seductively comic affair.
