Hay Fever

St. Bonaventure Church
1625 W. Diversey Chicago

Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with guests, novelist David Bliss and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children Simon and Sorel appear with guests of their own. A houseful of theatrics waits to be ignited as misunderstandings and tempers flare. With Judith's new flame and David's newest literary "inspiration" keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the "quiet weekend" comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale.

NewCity Chicago - Not Recommended

"...But all of these criticisms pale in the face of the lack of vision that caused a theater company to produce a racist, nearly one-hundred-year-old script in the first place. If you are going to do Coward you're going to have to deal with philosophies that were acceptable in his time that are absolutely unacceptable in this one. And if you're not going to deal with them in a thoughtful way you should either cut them entirely or not do Coward."
