7.45pm for 8pm – Chez Mary
Diana Morton-Hooper Deeks will lead us in reading
by Noël Coward
Hay Fever is a well-loved comic play written in 1924 and is best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners. The play is set in an English country house in the 1920s, and deals with the four eccentric members of the Bliss family and their outlandish behaviour when they each invite a guest to spend the weekend. The self-centred behaviour of the hosts finally drives their guests to flee while the Blisses are so engaged in a family row that they do not notice their guests’ furtive departure.
Never been to a play reading before? Well this would be an excellent one to start you off! Reading is not compulsory, so you can just listen, but if you do want to have a go at reading , in addition to the roles listed above, there are several tiny roles to break you in gently!
