The Noel Coward Theatre is finally showing a Noel Coward play, Hayfever starring Lindsay Duncan and Jeremy Northam until 2nd June.
The classic play is often described as the quintessential English comedy. The production has had brilliant reviews and should be on anybody's list of plays to see.
The Telegraph reviewer said "in Howard Davies’s superbly funny, sharply observant staging, with Lindsay Duncan leading a cast that brings every role to detailed life, the piece proves irresistible." "Howard Davies blows the dust off the piece and makes the play seem fresh and startling as well as amusing. Though firmly set in period, it never feels dated."
