15 Aug The Rivals – Tickets on Sale!
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.
