ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre’s series of captured-live high-definition broadcasts from London’s National Theatre continues with “Jack Absolute Flies Again” Thursday, Nov. 10. Showtimes are 2 and 7 p.m.

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.

Emily Burns directs this spectacularly entertaining new version of Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s “The Rivals.”
