The comedy, which stars Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles, opened in Bath earlier this month, the first production in the Theatre Royal following a two-month, £3.65 million refurbishment. Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s 1775 play is set in the fashionable society of the spa town, where a cast of extraordinary characters come to take the waters, show off their finery, indulge in gossip and pursue romance.
The production has historical significance, in that the modern Theatre Royal Haymarket was opened on 4 July 1821 with a production of The Rivals.
