Hay Fever by Noel Coward
Glenbrook Players is excited to be performing Hay Fever during November 2017. The play will be directed by Robyn Pope.
Hay Fever takes place in the comfortable but idiosyncratic home of the Bliss family. Judith, the mother, is a retired stage actress; David, the father, is a novelist. Their grown children, Simon and Sorel, still live at home. As the play opens, Simon and Sorel are exchanging insults about mutual friends and speculating that their mother is up to something in inviting a young man – who turns out to be called Sandy Tyrell – to the house for the weekend.
Rousing fights, surprise engagements, and fevered declarations of love drive the poor guests from the house, leaving the family happily bickering and playing amongst themselves as this stylish comedy bounces to its inevitable and intoxicating end.
The family is played by Margaret Bell and Costa Karagounis as Judith and David and Tom Oriti and Sophie Seaborn as Simon and Sorel with their quirky housekeeper Clara played by Rosie Crossing. The guests: Melanie Rinaldi (Myra), Harald Kleinmann (Richard), Heather McGreal (Jackie) and Josh Stojanvic (Sandy) . The director is Robyn Pope, most recently director of the Terry Pratchett series of plays and remembered for her portrayal of Madame Arcati in “Blithe Spirit”.
Hay Fever will be performed for 6 performances only at Glenbrook Community Theatre, corner Ross Street and the Great Western Highway, Glenbrook. Bookings can be made online by clicking the image Book Now image or by calling 4739 1110.
