Jack Absolute Flies Again

by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris

based on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Rivals


A rollicking new comedy by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night).


After an aerial dog fight, 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.


Emily Burns directs this spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals. Featuring a cast including Caroline Quentin, Laurie Davidson, Natalie Simpson and Kelvin Fletcher.


‘One of the funniest productions in the National’s history.’ Guardian on One Man, Two Guvnors


Pre-recorded in front of a live audience.
