The Rivals

by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
directed by Catherine Weidner

In Sheridan’s 18th century comedy of manners, deceit, and mistaken identities, two young lovers follow a misguided path to romance. When rival suitors, an overbearing father, and a busybody aunt complicate matters, only a proper duel can settle their questions of love and honor.
