Blackwood Players Inc were pleased to perform the revival season of Noel Coward's "Hay Fever" at the Blackwood Memorial Hall.
The play, originally written and performed in 1923, is a comedy of (extremely bad) manners as the four members of the Bliss family amuse themselves one weekend at the expense of their four guests.
First performed in London's West End and later on Broadway, the play is considered by many to be Coward's best.
The play was performed on the 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th of July; and the 9th and 10th of August 2013.
The Bliss family (father David, mother Judith and children Simon and Sorel) have each invited a guest to stay for the weekend at their house in the country. What should be a romantic romp for all soon turns into a free-for-all as each member of the Bliss house decides to make their guests' stay as miserable as possible.
David Bliss, the author, can't stay away from his female admirers, but then neither can Simon; while mother and daughter soon fall out over tall, athletic Sandy Tyrell. The weekend spirals out of control into a whirlpool of deceit, bad manners and melodrama.
