An NCPA-National Theatre Live (London) Presentation.
A rollicking new comedy by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night). After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to win the heart of his old flame, Lydia Languish. Back on British soil, Jack’s advances soon turn to anarchy when the young heiress demands to be loved on her own, very particular, terms. Emily Burns directs this spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals. This production features a cast that includes Caroline Quentin, Laurie Davidson, Natalie Simpson and Kelvin Fletcher. The Sunday Times has called it an “enormously loveable show” while Daily Mail has called it “a rare blast of sunshine.”
By Richard Bean and Oliver Chris
Based on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Rivals
