The Rivals

1775: a ‘selfie’ society not so different from our own, in which the wealthy and their servants alike are passionate about appearance and style.

Captain Jack Absolute (aka Ensign Beverley), Lydia Languish, Mrs Malaprop, Sir Lucius O’Trigger… in this fast-moving comedy everybody becomes tangled in the web of schemes and deceits they have themselves created.

Just three months after its London premiere, The Rivals was staged at York Theatre Royal. Helping to celebrate the reopening of the theatre, this classic play is back in an exciting new production.

Pre- Show Talk:
Professor Michael Cordner, from the Department of Theatre, Film and Television at the University of York, will give a free pre-show talk on Wednesday 23rd November. 6pm.

CreditsProducer: York Settlement Community Players

Writer: Richard Brinsley Sheridan
