Duncan gets ‘Hay Fever’

Northam, McNally, Colman co-star in Coward comedy

Lindsay Duncan will headline a new West End revival of Noel Coward’s comedy “Hay Fever” beginning Feb. 10.

The production, appropriately at the Noel Coward Theater, is helmed by triple Olivier Award winner Howard Davies. Duncan will be joined by Jeremy Northam, Kevin McNally and Olivia Colman.

Duncan and Davies previously starred in and directed, respectively, the original production of “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” and Coward’s “Private Lives,” the latter transferred to Gotham’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2002, netting Tonys for both.

Produced by Richard Willis, Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Prods. and Sonia Friedman Prods., the play is designed by Bunny Christie and lit by Mark Henderson. Further casting will be announced shortly.
