Set in the glamour of the 1920s, this comedy is Noël Coward at its finest – razor-sharp and dry as a martini! The Bohemian Bliss family is gathered for a relaxing weekend in the country – or that’s what their unsuspecting guests are looking forward to. But instead of afternoon tea and tennis, the achingly polite visitors stumble upon family feuds, tantrums, outlandish behavior, and old resentment. As the weekend unravels, the Bliss’ secrets and true colors are revealed as the self-absorbed family veers between mutual loathing and adoration – much to the horror of their captive audience. In the center of it all is the glamorously eccentric Judith Bliss, commanding attention from her spoiled offspring and her tortured writer of a husband.
A delightfully madcap comedy of bad manners! Watch a weekend getaway spiral into mayhem as tempers flare and eccentricities reign supreme! “An evening of intoxicating escape!” –NY Times
