Hay Fever – inD Theatre @ Rolling Bay Hall (Bainbridge Island)
By Noël Coward
Directed by Ken Michels
The ”divinely mad” Blisses are everything a respectable family ought not to be: unconventional, uncensored, and unapologetic. Judith, once-luminous star of the London stage, David, her novelist husband, and their adult children Sorel and Simon are enjoying their summer home in the English countryside. Life for this bohemian family is filled with theatrics, where reality easily slides into fiction.
Unbeknownst to one another, they have each invited a potential romantic interest to join them for the weekend. Secret seductions and scandalous revelations ensue as their guests try to fit into the whirlwind of this highly imaginative household. As the Blisses’ behavior becomes increasingly outrageous, their guests must decide whether to bask in the exhilarating vitality of their hosts or escape the madness.
Runs 2 hours 15 minutes, with two short intermissions
Location: Rolling Bay Hall (10598 NE Valley Rd, Bainbridge Island)
