Jack Absolute Flies Again

Friday, 10/21 to Sunday, 10/23

“★★★★★ The perfect comedy.” — Neil Norman, Daily Express

“★★★★★ A snortingly good, crowd-pleasing comedy.” — Patrick Marmion, Daily Mail

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.

This production includes a 20-minute intermission. The screening on Friday, 10/21 features English subtitles.
