The ultimate comedy of manners, this perennial favorite has galvanized actors and regaled audiences since its Covent Garden premiere in 1775. With its hilarious episodes of mistaken identity, withering satire of amorous intrigue, dizzying plot twists, and beloved characters like Lydia Languish, Captain Jack Absolute and the unforgettable Mrs. Malaprop, this springtime treat is a comedy festival in itself.
