About This Show

The Huntington Theatre presents The Rivals. Written by by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The Rivals satirizes the trappings of marriage and wealth. In the play, the affluent Captain Jack
Absolute disguises himself as a poor naval officer to woo the idealistic
Lydia Languish, an heiress to whom wealth means nothing. Lydia falls for
Jack but her aunt, Mrs. Malaprop, and his father, Sir Anthony, have other
plans for the young lovers. Mistaken identities, quarrels and duels, and
misconstrued circumstances set the stage for a satire of romance,
materialism, and social pretensions. Directed by Nicholas Martin
