The Rivals

Written in 1775, Sheridan’s dialogue crackles with wit even today. Captain Absolute, masquerading as Ensign Beverly, is courting a beautiful young heiress, Lydia Languish. Her aunt Mrs Malaprop has other ideas – as do his rivals, Bob Acres and Sir Lucius O’Trigger. Expect rapiers at dawn, pistols at elevenses, deceit, double deceit and double double deceit and all in the name of love!
