Hay Fever

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!

Our Next Social Event

Will take place on:

11 September – 8pm

The Bar Room

The Warehouse, 69 Rue Waelhem, 1030 Brussels

 

After June’s highly successful and fun Just a Minute evening, the ECC is calling on its most proficient fibbers to take part in the next social event, a version of Would I Lie To You, hosted by Chris Jones, on 11 September.

The simple idea of the game is to convince members of the audience that you are telling the truth even when you are not – something that the highly skilled actors of the ECC should have no problem with whatsoever!

But even if you’ve never acted in your life, come along and have a go – as Just a Minute showed, our behind-the-scenes team definitely have the gift of the gab as well!

The event is free, but you will be able to buy food (sandwiches and crisps) and drink from the bar, to help with loosening those tongues and getting the creative juices flowing.

To sign up (so we can ensure there are enough bottles to go around) click here:

If you are not familiar with The Warehouse:  To enter, ring the white bell to the right of the big double gateway.  Go through the gates and enter the building on the left by the far door and go up to the first floor.
