Synopsis

Wealthy captain Jack Absolute pretends to be poor officer Ensign Beverley to win the romantic Lydia in Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1775 comedy, which also features such characters as oafish Bob Acres, temper-prone Sir Lucius O'Trigger and Mrs. Malaprop, whose frequent confusion of words and their meanings coined the term "malapropism."
