The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
The Rivals, a new staging of a play from 1795 by Richard Binsley Sheridan is beginning previews at the Actors Gang Theatre in Culver City. Previews are September 21, 22, 27, and 28 at 8pm, and preview tickets are $15.
Here’s how the troupe describes the play: “Called 'a luscious feast of language and humor' and set in the notorious resort of Bath, the events of The Rivals are set spinning when a group of obsessed characters descend upon the town -- fortune hunters, filthy rich single girls, irate guardians, wily valets, plucky maids -- all positioning themselves to fulfill their desires for love and money! Fueled by gossip, intrigue, mistaken identities and epic generational conflicts, Sheridan's sparkling cast of characters includes the mythically comical "Mrs. Malaprop" who invents the mis-use of language that even today bears her name. Expect mayhem!”
Opening night is Saturday, September 29, at 8pm, and regular tickets are $25 (although all Thursdays are Pay-What-You-Can).
