Hay Fever was written by Noël Coward epitomises the sophisticated wit of the era between the two world wars. It is a comedy of manners about a family whose theatrical excesses torment a group of unsuspecting visitors. Coward wrote the play in just three days in 1925 and has won praise from both audiences and critics ever since. Considered by many to be cleverly constructed, wittily written, slightly cynical, and undeniably entertaining, the work contains all the elements that would help establish Coward’s reputation as a playwright.
Hay Fever is set in the hall of the Bliss family home. The eccentric Blisses—Judith, a recently retired stage actress, David, a self-absorbed novelist, and their two equally unconventional children — live in a world where reality slides easily into fiction. The maid, of course, has seen it all before, but the unfortunate weekend guests—a diplomat, a shy flapper, an athletic boxer, and a fashionable sophisticate— are repeatedly thrown into melodramatic scenes where their hosts gorge on their spurious emotions and react to situations that do not really exist. The resulting chaos ends only when the tortured visitors can take no more.
