Go To

Hay Fever is a 1924 comedy of manners written by Noël Coward.

It's a typical weekend for the Bliss family. Aging actress Judith Bliss, her novelist husband David, adult children Sorel and Simon, and long-suffering maid Clara have spent a long hard week tearing out each others' throats and are looking forward to a nice few days of peace and quiet. There's just one problem: each of the Blisses has invited a guest to stay at their manor for the weekend, and neglected to tell the others.
