About

Set in the British resort town of Bath, The Rivals is an energetic and vibrant romance told with dazzling wordplay! The idealistic Miss Lydia Languish insists on marrying a poor man, forcing her true love, the wealthy Captain Jack Absolute, to disguise himself. Our hero must use all his wits to woo his bride while avoiding the half-wats of the cranky Sir Antholy Absolute, the misspoken Mrs. Malaprop, and the genial Bob Acres. Directed by the Huntington's own master of comedy, Nicholas Martin, The Rivals is a sexy, joyous romp through the thorny rush bush of love.
