28 Mar NOVEMBER 2016 – YSCP will present Sheridan’s The Rivals
YSCP presents: The Rivals by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
To celebrate the 18th Century History of the soon-to-be-reopened York Theatre Royal, YSCP is delighted to be presenting, in The Studio Theatre:
The Rivals by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Referring to the earlier (1775) YTR reopening….
”When he (Tate Wilkinson) reopened at York in January 1775, there had been several changes in the company….Among the new pieces presented were two by local authors…The most important new play was, however, The Rivals, first acted on the York boards on April 8…York thus saw Sheridan’s immortal first comedy only three months after its appearance at Covent Garden.”
(The York Theatre Royal by Sybil Rosenfeld)
Directed by Graham Sanderson
To be performed: w/c 14 Nov and w/c 21 Nov 2016
