The Rivals
by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Wanganui Repertory Theatre is thrilled to present a sparkling new production of this much-loved Restoration comedy. Written in 1775, this comic masterpiece tells the wonderfully convoluted story of the wealthy Lydia Languish and her quest to elope with a 'half-pay ensign' Beverley while her meddlesome aunt, Mrs Malaprop, schemes to set her up with the well-to-do Captain Jack Absolute, son of the blustering Sir Anthony . Little do Lydia, Mrs Malaprop or Sir Anthony know that 'Ensign Beverley' and Jack Absolute are one and the same person.

Directed by Mark Rayner, this new adaptation has a cast of four main actors playing multiple roles - both male and female.

With Paul Collins (Mrs Malaprop/Faulkland), James Graves (Lydia Languish/Bob Acres), Colin Hedivan (Jack Absolute/Lucy) and Kerry O'Sullivan (Sir Anthony/Sir Lucius/Julia). Factotums and other doubling by Reuben Janes and Caius Wrigglesworth.
