About the Garden Suburb Theatre

With more than a century of history, the Garden Suburb Theatre is a forum for anyone who is passionate about the theatre.

Please have a look around our website and if you find anything that interests you then we’d love to hear from you – or find us on Facebook or even follow @GdnSubTheatre on Twitter

We have no requirements for membership other than a desire to join us in promoting and celebrating live theatre the best way we know how; by putting on shows.

There is no audition to join or even an expectation that you will have to act; we also nurture directors, musicians, costumiers, designers, set-builders, lighting and sound engineers, stage crew, even humble web designers.

Hay Fever – general information

Judith and David Bliss reside in the country with their grown up children Simon and Sorel. The family think they are a sociable bunch and each invites a guest down from London to stay for the weekend. What they have omitted to do is consult either the others or their long-suffering maid Clara. The scene is set for high drama, theatrical emotional outbursts and questionable romantic clinches. Will the unsuspecting guests survive the weekend with their sanity intact?

22 – 25 November 2018
