Stolen Shakespeare Guild’s production of Noël Coward’s Hay Fever opens tomorrow night at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center in the Sanders Theatre. Co-directed by Steven Lindsay and Allen Walker, the show runs through April 10, 2011.
This classic comedy is set in the 1920’s at the country home of the eccentric Bliss family – Judith, a recently retired stage actress; David, a self-absorbed novelist; and their two equally bohemian children, all of whom live in their own world where the boundaries between reality and fiction are extremely blurred. Upon entering this domain, their unsuspecting weekend guests are repeatedly thrown into wildly melodramatic situations by their hosts. The resulting pandemonium is a joy to witness.
Performing in the role of Sandy Tyrell, Brad Stephens will make his second appearance at Stolen Shakespeare Guild after starring as Benedick in the company’s critically acclaimed production of Much Ado About Nothing last year. He reunites with former cast-mates Lindsay (All My Sons), Walker and his loving and devoted wife, Arlette Morgan (Much Ado About Nothing). “I’m delighted to be collaborating again with such wonderful talent,” he said.
