Richard Bean's latest comedy follows a hapless WWII pilot

Richard Bean's farce 'One Man, Two Guvnors' has been one of the NT's biggest hits of recent years, so it's no surprise that he's loosely adapting another historical comedy for the theatre's massive Olivier mainstage. 'Jack Absolute Flies Again' is based on 1775 Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s 'The Rivals', which follows competing suitors who are after fashionable lady Lydia Languish's hand in marriage.

Richard Bean and Oliver Chris's vigorous rewrite sets the action during WWII, when fighter pilot Jack woos a young heiress. Thea Sharrock directs.
