Written by Richard Briey Sheridan and directed by Peter Hall.
A delightful tangle of romance, fury and deception, Sheridan's masterpiece, The Rivals, is a sprightly period romp. Penelope Keith (Entertaining Angels, The Importance of Being Earnest) and Peter Bowles (Relatively Speaking, The Unexpected Man) starred together in one of the most watched British sitcoms of all time, To the Manor Born.
Incredibly, The Rivals will see them sparring on stage for the first time. Sheridan's extraordinary comedy of manners promises an unmissable evening's entertainment.
Transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket from its successful run at Richmond Theatre.
The Rivals, starring Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles.
