The Rivals is a comedy of manners drama by Richard Brinsley Sheridan in five acts. It was first performed at Covent Garden Theatre on 17 January 1775.
The play takes place in Bath in the 18th century, a town that was legendary for conspicuous consumption and fashion at the time. Wealthy, fashionable people went there to "take the waters", which were believed to have healing properties. Bath was much less exclusive than London, and hence it provides an ideal setting for the characters.
