a cowardly couple of hours

It was another night at the Guthrie Theater last night, this time with my son Jon to see the current new production of Hay Fever by Noel Coward.  It's a play I didn't know but have liked other Coward plays like Private Lives and Blithe Spirit.

Hay Fever (and, having seen it, I have no idea why it is named Hay Fever) was first produced in 1925, takes place right then in the Roaring '20s, is sort of a goofy-family comedy.  It's a fun diversion and the theater was packed, so I guess the Guthrie has another hit on its hand.
