Saint Sebastian Players has announced the cast and production team for Noel Coward’s HAY FEVER.

Directed by company members Brittany Eude and Steven Walanka, the production features company members Eric S. Prahl as David, Natalie Reff as Sorel and Kate O’Connor as Clara, along with Sarah Allyn Althen, Kate Fitzgerald, Pete Giessl, Nicola Howard, Matthew Shultz and Sebastian Summers.

The production team includes Jim Masini as technical director, Emil Zbella as set designer, Robert-Eric West as costume designer and dialect coach, Aaron Harris Woodstein as sound designer and Nancy Pollock as properties manager. Jacob Lynch is lighting designer.

From the press release: “Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with guests, novelist David Bliss and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children Simon and Sorel appear with guests of their own. A houseful of theatrics waits to be ignited as misunderstandings and tempers flare. With Judith’s new flame and David’s newest literary “inspiration” keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the “quiet weekend” comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale.”

HAY FEVER runs February 16–March 11 at St. Bonaventure, 1625 W. Diversey, Chicago. For more information visit
