The Rivals

Sheridan’s first play draws on material from his own life—his scandalous marriage to a popular singer and the characters he knew in the town of Bath. His great satire turns the familiar world of arranged marriages, courtship, and rivalry on its head. One of the sharpest and funniest social comedies of the late eighteenth century is presented in the theatre built just nine years before the play was written in 1775.
