A delicious classic that delights in its own idiosyncrasies, The Rivals rewrote the history of comedy and the English dictionary with the help of the famously misspoken Mrs. Malaprop. You'll be pleased as lunch to spend an evening in the company of darling Mrs. M. and her erroneous vocabulary, plummeting to new heights of hilarity with this ultimate cast of comedic characters as they look for love. The romantic and rich Lydia Languish loves her Captain Jack, but will she find out he's a wolf in cheap clothing? Will the stern Sir Anthony Absolute turn out to be a big softie after all? And who could refuse to love a character named Fag? Please remain calm, dear audience--this is not a pigment of your imagination.
