About The Event

Set in 1940s pastoral Britain, the show is a hilarious wartime  farce, with plenty of heart. The cast includes comedy legend Caroline Quentin and Strictly Come  Dancing winner Kelvin Fletcher.  

It’s written by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris  (Twelfth Night), and directed by Emily Burns (The Comeback), the play  is a vibrant and entertaining reimagining of Sheridan’s The Rivals.

After an aerial dogfight, 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.

★★★★★‘An enormously loveable show’ - Sunday Times 

★★★★★‘A snortingly good, crowd-pleasing comedy’ - Daily Mail
