A Lysicrates Prize finalist, The Feather in the Web is Nick Coyle's wild and unpredictable take on infatuation and self-discovery. Griffin's former Artistic Associate Ben Winspear returns to direct Tina Bursill, Gareth Davies, Michelle Lim Davidson and Claire Lovering in what can only be described as one of the most inventive plays to land on the SBW stage and a startling coming of age story. Part picaresque, part fable, moving from engagement parties to improv comedy, the play skewers our obsession with couples and careers and asks just how much we're willing to give, and lose, for love?

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals, a comedy of manners, did not receive a warm welcome in it's first performance at Covent Garden Theatre in 1775. After a rewrite, however, it captured the audience's hearts and funny bones, and has been delighting audiences ever since. A new musical version of The Rivals, with book and lyrics by Richard Kellogg and music by Stephen Weiner, will hit the stage at the Bristol Riverside Theatre October 30th under the direction of Eric Tucker. The Rivals is the story of a wealthy young woman, Lydia Languish, who will lose a portion of her wealth if she does not marry someone of whom her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop, approves. Between mistaken identities, scheming servants, and unintentionally misused words, The Rivals is sure to have audiences laughing. The all-star cast includes Harriet Harris, who has portrayed Bebe Glazer in Frazier, Mrs. Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Felicia Tilman in Desperate Housewives, among many other roles. BroadwayWorld recently had the opportunity to speak with Harris about her experience with The Rivals.
