The Rivals : Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s International Acting Course presents Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s uproarious comedy of manners, The Rivals.
Young Captain Absolute, son and heir of wealthy Sir Anthony, arrives in Bath to court the rich and lovely Lydia Languish. His ploy, to appeal to her romantic nature by appearing as ‘penniless’ Ensign Beverley, backfires when he discovers Lydia prefers an elopement with Beverley to a marriage with Absolute!
But what of her fortune? And what will Lydia’s censorious Aunt, Mrs Malaprop, say about all this? “Sure if I reprehend anything in this world, it is the use of my oracular tongue, and a nice derangement of epitaphs”.
For an hilarious and witty comedy, come meet The Rivals. Surely “never was anything better perpetrated”.
