A pilot officer flies home from an aerial dogfight and struggles to win the heart of his old flame, in a rollicking comedy based on Sheridan’s The Rivals.
Back on British soil, Jack’s advances soon turn to anarchy when the young heiress demands to be loved on her own, very particular, terms. Emily Burns directs this lively comedy, a spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s classic play, written by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night).
