Those Radio Times: Noel Coward's Hay Fever On Audiobook


AudioGo recently released the 1971 Radio 4 Full-Cast production of Noel Coward's Hay Fever on compact disc.

This Comedy Of Manners and High Farce featured Dame Peggy Ashcroft as the actress Judith Bliss who invites a fan to her home for the weekend unaware that all her other family members have also invited guests to her home.

This consequently results in the original houseparty from hell.

Hay Fever was originally written in the 1920s and was approaching its half century when Peggy Ashcroft along with Tony Britten, Maurice Denham, Millicent Martin, Geoffrey Beevers and Julia Foster recorded this version for BBC Radio 4.

It was broadcast in Saturday-Night Theatre on 18th December 1971 as part of The Peggy Ashcroft Season.

The scans featured here are from the edition of Radio Times covering 18-31 December 1971.
