The Rivals

2004Runtime:0 minutes
This witty production of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's timeless play stars Anna Madeley and Adam Rayner. To court the quixotic Lydia Languish (Madeley) -- who cares little about riches -- Capt. Jack Absolute (Rayner) poses as a penniless soldier. But working to stymie the romance is an assortment of comical characters, including Jack's antagonistic father (David Burke), Lydia's sharp-tongued aunt (Selina Cadell) and a rival suitor (Dylan Charles).
