The production, which is directed by Howard Davies, will play a limited West End season at the Noel Coward Theatre from 23 February (previews from 10 February) to 2 June 2012.
In Hay Fever, bohemian actress Judith Bliss and her writer husband live in a rural haven with their precocious son and daughter. When various guests are invited down for the weekend, they become pawns in the family’s emotional, madcap games.
Lindsay Duncan was last seen in the West End in That Face, which transferred from the Royal Court to the Duke of York’s in 2008. Her other Royal Court credits include Mouth to Mouth, Ashes to Ashes and Top Girls. She won her first Best Actress Olivier for the Royal Shakespeare Company’s original production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which was also directed by Howard Davies.
