Hay Fever, a comedy of manners that made Noel Coward one of the most popular playwrights of the 30s and 40s, is set in an English country house in the 1920s. Four members of the eccentric Bliss family each invite a guest for the weekend. Self-centered and outlandish behavior soon causes their house guests to flee, all to the oblivion of the Bliss'.
