Anyone interested in beautiful clothes, devastating wit, and the chaos of romance should not miss Sheridan's The Rivals. Satirizing the trappings of marriage and wealth with timeless humor, the affluent Captain Jack Absolute disguises himself as a poor naval officer to woo the idealistic Lydia Languish, to whom wealth means nothing. Mistaken identities and misconstrued circumstances set the stage for a hilarious satire of romance, materialism and social pretensions.
