Play may have no ud­der Ri­vals when it comes to the Key

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - The Guide -

Cow this re­vival is all but un­miss­able.

Set in the 1700s, The Ri­vals tells the story of a day in the life of a cir­cle of so­cialites swoop­ing in on the fash­ion­able city of Bath, to take the wa­ters, find ro­mance and have a jolly good gossip!

Con­fu­sion, du­els, mad­ness and may­hem en­sue in this hi­lar­i­ous pe­riod mas­ter­piece.

En­ter Mrs Malaprop with her fa­mous twisted phrases, her niece Ly­dia Lan­guish who is busy fall­ing in love with the hand­some Cap­tain Jack, who him­self is be­ing pushed around by his ex­plo­sive fa­ther Sir An­thony Ab­so­lute.

Cre­ative Cow was founded in 2007 by two pro­fes­sional ac­tors, Kather­ine Se­nior and Jonathan Par­ish and skilled artis­tic di­rec­tor Amanda Knott, and called Cre­ative Cow be­cause it was con­ceived on a cat­tle farm in Devon.

Jonathan Par­ish stars as Cap­tain Ab­so­lute and Kather­ine Se­nior takes on the role of Mrs Malaprop. Jack Hul­land is Acres and Har­vey Robin­son is Sir Lu­cius OTrig­ger.

Kather­ine is a founder mem­ber of Cre­ative Cow, and said: “We’re very ex­cited about this pro­duc­tion. It’s a hugely en­joy­able – and ex­pertly crafted – piece of the­atre that au­di­ences just love. We toured it for two months late last year and due to its success we have ex­tended the tour .

“We’ve worked hard, and had huge fun, mak­ing sure we get the very best from it for our au­di­ences.“In other words, we’re pre­sent­ing a great night out and we’re very much look­ing for­ward to coming to Peter­bor­ough.”
