Rivals, The Synopsis

It's 1775 and the fashionable world descends on Bath, to take the waters, show off their finery, enjoy the gossip and pursue romance. Amongst them are some of the most extraordinary comic characters to grace the stage: the verbally misguided Mrs Malaprop, her absurdly romantic niece, Lydia Languish, the blinkered Sir Anthony Absolute, the blustering Irishman Sir Lucius O'Trigger and the bumpkin Bob Acres. Throughout the course of single day these suitors and schemers and their servants indulge in an assortment of hilariously extravagant intrigues before everyone is paired off to their own satisfaction.

Much-loved actress Penelope Keith returns to Bath after many previous appearances. Her work includes Entertaining Angels, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Relatively Speaking and Blithe Spirit and The Good Life on television.

Peter Bowles is one of Britain's most distinguished actors whose starring roles on television include The Bounder and The Irish RM. His work with Peter Hall includes Separate Tables, School For Wives, The Misanthrope, Major Barbara and The Browning Version and Swansong in the 2009 Peter Hall Company Season in Bath.
