THEATRE ROYAL BATH PRODUCTIONS presents FELICITY KENDAL in Noel Coward’s HAY FEVER. Following a sold out run at the Theatre Royal Bath last summer and a subsequent tour of Australia, Lindsay Posner’s production of HAY FEVER transfers to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited run, 29th April – 1st August 2015.
Multi award winning actress Felicity Kendal plays Judith, the once glittering star of the London stage and member of the Bliss family. Together with her husband David, an egocentric novelist, and Sorel and Simon, their two Bohemian adult children – the family are incapable of sharing the spotlight. Unconventional, risqué, and often downright rude, they are everything a respectable English family should not be. When each member of the family invites a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors are thrown into a living melodrama. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and scandalous revelations proliferate during one outrageous weekend in Berkshire.
Felicity Kendal is one of the UK’s most popular actresses, known for her role in The Good Life on television and having received numerous accolades for her stage work. Her recent West End appearances have included Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking, Coward’s The Vortex and Bernard Shaw’s Mrs Warren’s Profession.
One of the UK’s greatest directors of comedy, Lindsay Posner directs Coward for the first time with this production. His recent successes have included Noises Off, Abigail’s Party and Relatively Speaking.
