Duels, duplicities and disguises abound in Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s timeless comedy. At the center of it all is Lydia Languish, who is … languishing. She is infatuated 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 really 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?
