he Tony Award-winning Old Globe presents Noel Coward's comedy Hay Fever, directed by Robert Longbottom. Each member of the eccentric Bliss family - a retired actress, her novelist husband, and their two children - invites a guest to their country home, unbeknownst to each other. As the unwitting visitors arrive in hopes of a romantic weekend, the stage is set for comedy and chaos. Coward wrote the play in just three days at the ripe young age of 24. Considered one of the playwright's best and most enduring works, Hay Fever is a comedic masterpiece, filled with Coward's brilliant wit and biting commentary on the theatrical profession.
