Noel Coward's High Comedy "Hay Fever"
HAY FEVER by Noël Coward
Directed by Adrian Goldman
Produced by The Finn-Brit Players and Passport Theatre
It is May in Helsinki, the flowers are out, pollen is in the air and "Hay Fever" is coming to town. This delightful comedy is arguably Noël Coward’s finest and funniest play. It is set in the late Protected content in the Bliss’ country house. The utterly self-absorbed and eccentric Bliss family have all, unbeknownst to each other, invited guests down for the weekend. Love, laughter and drama ensues. The play is best described as a “high comedy of ill manners.” As Mark Fisher in the Guardian wrote “This … subversive Protected content is the missing link between William Shakespeare and Edward Albee”.
This international production has a cast of professionals, semi-professionals and wannabees: Stephanie Carlson (Judith Bliss), Demian Stimson (David Bliss), Hosanna Megumi (Sorel Bliss), Mikael Kivimäki (Simon Bliss), Jess Hollmeier (Myra Arundel), Alistair Logan (Richard Greatham), Elina Jackson (Jackie Coryton), Todd Elliott (Sandy Tyrell), and Sophie Michaud (Clara).
Do not miss this wonderfully delicious and malicious high comedy of summer where the people bite harder than the mosquitoes. Many of the same actors who appeared in "The Melancholy Play" in Protected content perform in "Hay Fever".
The official Internations Event evening is Thursday, May 17. If this is inconvenient there are 4 other performances from which to choose.
This amateur production of “Hay Fever” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
