News   Old Globe Catches Hay Fever as Coward Comedy Begins July 14 Noël Coward's classic comedy Hay Fever begins performances at the Old Globe Theatre July 14.

Robert Longbottom (Side Show, The Scarlet Pimpernel) directs the work for the San Diego, CA company. The production, which officially opens July 19, is scheduled to run through Aug. 19.

Hay Fever centers around "the eccentric Bliss family" which, according to a production description, includes "a retired actress, her novelist husband, and their two children [who] invite a guest to their country home, unbeknownst to each other. As the unwitting visitors arrive in hopes of a romantic weekend, the stage is set for comedy and chaos."

The design team includes Andrew Jackness (scenic), Gregg Barnes (costumes), Chris Akerlind (lighting) and Paul Peterson (sound). Tracy Skoczelas serves as stage manager.

Tickets for Hay Fever are on sale through the Globe Ticket Services at (619) 23 GLOBE, at the Globe Box Office (1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park) or theoldglobe.org.
