By Noël Coward
27th Annual FREE Classic Series
Made possible by a grant from the City of Coronado
Blissfully bad behavior.
May 19-June 4, 2023
Thurs-Sat @ 8pm, Sat-Sun Matinee @ 2pm
Directed by Hannah Meade
For year 27 of the Free Classic Series, Coronado audiences will be transported to 1920s England to meet the outrageous and opinionated Bliss family in Noël Coward’s Hay Fever. In this biting script, a quiet vacation goes awry when David and Judith Bliss’s children Simon and Sorel crash their holiday, bringing along unassuming guests. A torrid game of charades, a whirlwind engagement, and dramatic fainting all occur in a single act! The characters’ emotive personalities and curt bickering play against the atmosphere of English high society in this layered comedy. The self-absorbed Bliss family fails to recognize their own petulant behaviors as the weekend unravels.
With a committed ensemble, this sharp-witted and over-the-top comedy will surely be a riot as Hay Fever continues to delight audiences with its astute observations on family relationships and rivalries.
“An evening of intoxicating escape.” – The New York Times
“Light, luminous, and charming, and hilariously funny.” – New York Post
