JACK ABSOLUTE FLIES AGAIN by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris. After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to win the heart of his old flame, Lydia Languish. Back on British soil, Jack's advances soon turn to anarchy when the young heiress demands to be loved on her own, very particular, terms.
The play shows the lives of a World War Two RAF fighter squadron (male and female) as they prepare for battle at their base. Richard Brinsley Sheridan's classic comedy of manners, The Rivals, is given an uproarious Battle of Britain update by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris. Mrs Malaprop is, of course, central to the plot with Richard Bean’s terrifically updated malapropisms.
This amateur production of Jack Absolute Flies Again is presented by Stamford Arts Centre’s resident theatre company.
