HAY FEVER – The Plot

It is summer 1925 and you are invited to an hilarious stay at the elegant Cookham home of the hopelessly theatrical Bliss family – Judith. a retired actress, David, a novelist and their two over-indulged children, Simon and Sorel.

When each family member reveals they have invited a house-guest for the week-end, without telling anyone else (including the housekeeper), the scene is set for some chaotic encounters.

It soon becomes clear that the guests are not the problem at all, but the Bliss family itself – as Judith turns every moment into her own private drama, and her husband and children assume the roles of her supporting cast….

Wednesday 26 Feb – Saturday 29 Feb @ 7.30pm.

As David Bliss.

Although John has been closely connected with BTG for over twenty years this is his first time on stage with them.
