Romantic havoc ensues in the town of Bath when Sir Anthony arrives to arrange the marriage of his son Jack to the wealthy Lydia Languish. Jack and Lydia are already in love, but because of Lydia's obsession with romantic novels, Jack has disguised himself as a poor officer named Ensign Beverly - and he is only one of Lydia's many suitors. The Rivals was Sheridan's first play, and this charming comedy of manners continues to be widely performed today. Includes an interview with Linda Kelly, author of Richard Brinsley Sheridan: A Life. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Lloyd Owen as Captain Jack Absolute; Lucy Davis as Lydia Languish; Rosalind Ayres as Mrs. Malaprop; Kenneth Danziger as Thomas; Neil Dickson as David; Sarah Drew as Julia; Julian Holloway as Sir Lucius O'Trigger; Christopher Neame as Sir Anthony Absolute; Moira Quirk as Lucy; Alan Shearman as Fag; Simon Templeman as Bob Acres; Matthew Wolf as Faulkland.
