The Rivals –by: Richard Brinsley Sheridan

The play is set in Bath in the 18th century, a town legendary for conspicuous consumption and fashion at the time.

CHAPTER I.

"I wondered whether you wouldn't read it to me," said Mrs. Alsager, as they lingered a little near the fire before he took leave. She looked down at the fire sideways, drawing her dress away from it and making her proposal with a shy sincerity that added to her charm. Her charm was always great for Allan Wayworth, and the...
