THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL

BY RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN

28 APRIL – 30 MAY 2015

Scandal Tile Web“People will talk—there’s no preventing it.

A hedonistic society consumed by gossip, ambition and greed forms the backdrop for this delicious, witty comedy of manners.

Two brothers, one an amiable rake, the other a sanctimonious cad, are tested by their wealthy uncle to determine which is the more trustworthy; and crusty old fool-in-love tries to tame his feisty, much-younger wife.

Amidst the hilarity, the plots and subplots and many tangled webs lurks a cast of characters whose names say it all: Lady Teazle, Lady Sneerwell, Mrs Candour, Surface, Backbite, Snake … There is much deception, double-dealing and backstabbing but virtue wins out over vice in the end.

This production will bring a contemporary vision to an 18th century classic. Human nature doesn’t change: the foibles and desires on display in this world of hypocritical scandal-mongering are all too recognizable and make Sheridan’s satirical morality play a timeless joy. +PICS +PRESS
