Description

Directed by: Emily Burns

From the writer of One Man, Two Guvnors comes a hilarious new play, set in 1940s British summertime. After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to rejoin his fearless young Hurricane squadron at RAF Fontwell. Once back on British soil, Jack is shocked to find his old flame, Lydia, on the base. He sets his sights on winning her heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his advances quickly turn to anarchy.

Emily Burns directs this spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals, featuring a cast including Caroline Quentin (Doc Martin) and Kelvin Fletcher.
