Hay Fever Directed by Cedric Messina

What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Hay Fever

    As with most Coward the dialogue bounces like bee stings off shellac - sharp at the point of impact but not leaving any real impact. Here an archly theatrical piece gets an archly theatrical television treatment. In common with most televised plays of this ilk - and of this era - it’s essentially filmed theatre but it’s none the worse for it and couldn’t be any other way without loosing its rapier motor.
