Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Sheridan’s delightful tale of romantic entanglement and disguise is brought bang up to date in this inventive new production, featuring music, dance and an outstanding cast.
One of the best loved comedies of all time, The Rivals follows the meddling Mrs Malaprop on her quest to marry off her spirited niece, Lydia Languish. But with the handsome Captain Absolute and the poetic but penniless Beverley vying for her hand, Lydia has ideas of her own. Little does she realise that these rivals are one and the same man!
