THE RIVALS

Genre: Classical, Comedy
Written by: Richard Brinsley Sheridan; Directed by: Michael Hogwood

In the depraved nightclub called BATH the wildest of desires can come true. This seedy underground petri dish is where you will meet Captain Absolute, who gets off on role playing & Lydia Languish, who likes to dominate. Julia Melville gets hot playing games & Faulkland likes to watch. The smoky haze of the dance floor finds the disgustingly dirty Bobby Acres trying on women's panties all while the heavily made-up Mrs. Malaprop works the stripper poles. Look closely and in a back corner booth you might find vile Lucius O'Trigger polishing his naked sword. Under the pulsing lights of a haze-filled dance floor beasty-boys David and Fag break-dance. Thomas likes to be choked. It's obvious because he's hanging from a noose. Come to BATH. You just might meet a girl named Lucy who hides things up her skirt.  A Comedy of (bad) Manners
