BMEG actor Monica Sayers appears as Myra Arundel in Melbourne Theatre Company’s Hay Fever which will run 23rd September – 28th October 2017 at Southbank Theatre, The Sumner.
“Although Judith, a retired actress, tends towards melodrama in her everyday affairs, and her husband, David, a novelist, can be rather reclusive and foul tempered – the Bliss family can be perfectly charming when they want to be. Their grown-up children, Simon and Sorel, are quite capable of civility too – if it suits them. It is just that, on this blighted weekend, each has invited a guest to stay at their country house without telling any of the others. So dashed inconsiderate! And for their poor guests, perfect agony!
No Bright Young Thing ever burned brighter than Noël Coward in the Twenties, and his deliciously seductive comedy of bad manners, Hay Fever, has been raising scandalised laughter for almost a hundred years. – MTC
