The Rivals

18 June 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Directed by Matthew Chapman
The Adelaide Repertory Theatre is excited to announce that we will be returning LIVE to the ARTS Theatre in December for a limited season of three performances. With only 460 tickets available for the season, they are selling fast and will sell out! Tickets are $20 each and must be pre-booked.
Please note the earlier start time of 7pm!
We have a strict COVID management plan which we must adhere to. We ask that you sit in your assigned chequerboard seating, keep physically distanced from one another, use the provided hand sanitiser and do not attend the theatre if you are sick.
About the play:
It’s 1775. A swashbuckling hero. A romantic beauty. A tortured lover. A damsel in distress. A jealous rival. A social-climbing aunt. A tyrannical father.
All are set to explode in a trip down to Bath, in this beautiful comedy of manners…as in bad manners. Richard Brinsley Sheridan was England’s first celebrity playwright: controversy and excitement followed him everywhere. In The Rivals he turns to his infamous elopement with one Elizabeth Linely (in which Sheridan himself was disowned by his parents and made to fight three duels from jealous suitors and nearly resulted in his own death, into a romp full of sparkling wit, larger than life characters, and…a pineapple?
