Felicity Kendal gives the greatest performance of her career as Judith Bliss – once glittering star of the London stage - in Noel Coward’s hilarious comedy of bad manners Hay Fever at the Duke of York's Theatre.
In Hayfever the Bliss family are incapable of sharing the spotlight. Unconventional, risqué and often downright rude, they are everything a respectable English family shouldn’t be. When each member of the family invites a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors are thrown into a living melodrama. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and scandalous revelations proliferate during one outrageous weekend in Berkshire.
