In the heady heat of summer on the fashionable streets of Georgian Bath, rich heiress Lydia Languish has three lovers fighting for her hand. But Lydia – a greedy devourer of romantic novels – has set her heart on eloping with a penniless infantry officer, Ensign Beverley, the choice of whom her formidable aunt Mrs Malaprop (a notorious murderer of the dictionary) deeply disapproves. What Lydia doesn’t know is that Beverley is not all he seems...
In this whirlwind of romance, deception and intrigue, it’s no wonder the would-be suitors end up coming to blows. A stylish and witty revival celebrating Sheridan’s classic masterpiece.
