HAY FEVER by NOËL COWARD
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.
A delightfully madcap comedy of bad manners! Watch a weekend getaway spiral into mayhem as tempers flare and eccentricities reign supreme!

RPYC Transportation
transportation service:

Based on several requests from our members who find driving at night to be a challenge the RPYC Board has approved paying the cost for private transportation service for select events. 
Joan McMahon will be coordinating the requests, however you will be responsible for arranging your own transportation i.e. taxi, uber, private van, etc

. Once you have a paid receipt please get it to Joan and you will be reimbursed by the Club for the cost of your transportation.
