(From Wikipedia)  The Rivals is a comedy of manners by Richard Brinsley Sheridan in five acts The play is set in 18th-century Bath, 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 society was much less exclusive than London, and hence it provides an ideal setting for the characters.

The plot centres on the two young lovers, Lydia and Jack. Lydia, who reads a lot of popular novels of the time, wants a purely romantic love affair. To court her, Jack pretends to be "Ensign Beverley", a poor army officer. Lydia is enthralled with the idea of eloping with a poor soldier in spite of the objections of her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop, a moralistic widow.

Just Like Us by Karen Zacarias tells the true story of four Mexican-American girls coming of age - two with documents, and two without. As they graduate high school and navigate college in the years after 9/11 but before DACA, they find many doors open, while some remain shut. A deeply personal look at the way policy can shape the lives of individuals, Just Like Us is exciting, dramatic, laugh-out-loud funny, and leaves its audiences with as many questions as answers.
