- The Rivals
Comedy-play written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, a tale of romance, fury and deception.
"Monte Carlo, 1928. The cream of English society has descended on the French Riviera for the summer season. Among them is Jack Absolute, who has fallen for the beautiful, romance-obssesed Lydia Languish, but his plan to win her hand grows steadily more complicated as a host of madcap characters become involved. These include some of the most brilliantly-formed comic creations in the history of the theatre: 'queen of the dictionary' Mrs. Malprop, blustering Sir Anthony, jovial country-gentleman Bob Acres, and down-on-his-luck, duel-loving Irishman Sir Lucius O'Trigger. In one frantic afternoon Jack must find his way through a web of intrigue and try not to lose the girl, his life, or both."
