Written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
Wickedly witty, this comic masterpiece written over 200 years ago crackles with humor. Duels, duplicities and disguises abound in this timeless comedy. At the center of it all is languishing Lydia Languish. She is smitten with a penniless ensign and can imagine nothing more romantic than sacrificing her substantial inheritance by eloping with him. Little does she know her poor soldier is none other than Jack Absolute, a wealthy aristocrat who fears the truth of his identity isn’t nearly romantic enough for Lydia’s taste. How will he win her- from himself?
