The Rivals, written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan in 1775, is a portrait of his own scandalous marriage to a popular singer of the time and characters he knew in the town of Bath. This classic satire of arranged marriages, courtship and rivalry is one of the sharpest and funniest social comedies of its time. Captured live in a theatre built just nine years before the play was written.
