As part of the Acts of Faith Festival, Virginia Repertory Theatre offers Noël Coward’s “Hay Fever.” This comedy of manners unfolds in the English countryside of the 1920s. It deals with the four bohemian members of the Bliss family and their unusual, outlandish behavior when they invite unsuspecting guests to spend a weekend in the country. Virginia Rep also holds a discussion after the Feb. 24 show. The production features the local acting talent of Irene Ziegler, Michael Goodwin, Adrian Rieder, Maggie Horan, Matt Bloch, Terri Moore, Dennis Riva, Molly Hood and Maggie Roop. “Hay Fever” opens Friday, Feb. 15, at the November Theatre and runs through March 3. $25-$46. va-rep.org.
