HART presents Noel Coward Comedy

Haywood Arts Regional Theater’s next production will be the Noel Coward comedy “Hay Fever” at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 19, 20 and 25 to 27 and at 3 p.m. on Aug. 21 and 28.

From the 1920’s until his death in 1973, Coward was one of the most popular British playwrights of his age and also one of the most prolific, with more than 50 published works to his credit.

“Hay Fever” centers around the antics that ensue when each member of the eccentric Bliss family invites an unsuspecting guest away for the weekend.

The HART production is directed by Jeff Bachar. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors and $8 for students and children. Special $5 discount tickets for students are available for Thursday and Sunday performances. For more information call 828.456.6322 or visit www.harttheatre.com.
