Although Judith, a retired actress, tends towards melodrama in her everyday affairs, and her husband, David, a novelist, can be rather reclusive and foul tempered – the Bliss family can be perfectly charming when they want to be. Their grown-up children, Simon and Sorel, are quite capable of civility too – if it suits them. It is just that, on this blighted weekend, each has invited a guest to stay at their country house without telling any of the others. So dashed inconsiderate! And for their poor guests, perfect agony!

No Bright Young Thing ever burned brighter than Noël Coward in the Twenties, and his deliciously seductive comedy of bad manners, Hay Fever, has been raising scandalised laughter for almost a hundred years. For this high society classic, the irresistible Marina Prior (Jumpy) will be joined by Simon Gleeson (star of Les Misérables), directed by 2016 Helpmann Award-winner Lee Lewis (Rupert).

Production programmes are now just $2 and are available for purchase in the theatre foyers. You can also download a copy of the Hay Fever programme before you head to the theatre, and a range of other information about the show – ranging from interviews to videos – can be found throughout the season at mtc.com.au/backstage.
