BLISSFULLY BAD BEHAVIOUR
Warminster School Drama Department are proud to present ‘Hay Fever’ by Noel Coward at the Athenaeum Theatre in Warminster on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th November at 7pm. ‘Hay Fever’ is one of Coward’s most durable comedies, continuing to delight audiences with its astute observations on family relationships and rivalries. The action takes place in the house of the Bliss family over the course of a weekend in Berkshire, set in 1925.
When each member of the family invites a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors are thrown into a living melodrama. The Bliss family are incapable of sharing the spotlight and use their guests as pawns in their twisted game. Unconventional, risqué and downright rude, they are everything a respectable English family shouldn’t be. ‘Hay Fever’ provides a shrewd, farcical look at a dysfunctional family oblivious to their ill-mannered behaviour.
Tickets are now live and you can purchase them via this direct link: Hayfever.
Year 9 are attending the Friday 17th November performance as part of their live theatre evaluation assignment, so we look forward to playing to full audiences.
