Theatre Live

Jack Absolute Flies Again by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris

based on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s
The Rivals

A rollicking new comedy by Richard
Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night).

After an aerial dog fight, Pilot
Officer Jack Absolute flies home to win the heart of his old flame, Lydia
Languish. 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
spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals. Featuring a
cast including Caroline Quentin, Laurie Davidson, Natalie
Simpson and Kelvin Fletcher.

‘One of the funniest productions in
the National’s history.’ Guardian on One Man, Two Guvnors
