The School for Scandal (2006)

by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Opening Night 05 October 2006
Director: Andrew Morrison

The School for Scandal (1777) is widely regarded as one of the finest comedies in the English language, and its wit, humour and social commentary still touch a nerve nearly 330 years after its premiere. The play follows the antics of a group of men and women of fashion in late eighteenth-century London, and provides a kaleidoscopic view of society at the time, from the old gentleman and his new wife, to a sneering set of gossips, and two brothers who are tested by their wealthy uncle regarding an inheritance. The various characters and plots soon collide, with hilarious consequences. The School for Scandal combines razor-sharp wit and dialogue with scathing satire and a hefty dose of farce to create a unique theatrical experience. Don�t miss the chance to see a contemporary production of this classic play
