The Rivals: Creative Cow Theatre Company, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
A day in the life of a circle of socialites swooping in on the fashionable city of Bath, to take the waters, find romance and have a jolly good gossip! No, it's not another modern day 'docusoap', it's Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 18th century hilarious masterpiece The Rivals.
Confusion, duels, madness and mayhem ensue in Sheridan's first and most famous play, packed full of the most extraordinary comic characters. Enter Mrs Malaprop with her famous twisted phrases, her niece Lydia Languish who is busy falling in love with the handsome Captain Jack, who himself is being pushed around by his explosive father Sir Anthony Absolute.
After several misinterpreted love letters, cross-conversations and an organised street fight, the day ends with each suitor happily paired off and country bumpkin, Bob Acres, throwing a big party for them all!
With Creative Cow's slick, fast-paced, inventive and stylised signature on the most fashionable comedy ever written, The Rivals is one show not to miss!
Creative Cow is a touring repertory theatre company. The aim is to present to wide and diverse audiences the very best in classic and contemporary playwriting with imaginative and accomplished performances. The atmosphere is one of intimacy and informality within a professional framework.
The productions and sets are clever and innovative. Performances are designed to be simple, direct and entertaining and easily transportable to theatres, pubs and private houses. The company takes pride in touring the same show to 900 seat theatres and 40 seat art galleries.
