In response to The Rivals, written by The Mysterious H.C. on March 04, 1998 at 21:51:58
] The Rivals is one of my favorite plays (I once made a posting to AUSTEN-L in which I cast the Mansfield Park theatricals crrowd in The Rivals, and concluded that they would have done much better to have acted that, rather than Lovers' Vows...)
I knew you would favour this suggestion! And actually, I was thinking exactly what you said--that if we read this play, it would be fun to see what roles Maria, Mary, Edmund, Henry and everyone might have taken instead.
