The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Guignol Theatre 

The comedic, satirical play, The School for Scandal, by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, is a scathing attack on pretension and hypocrisy. It was originally staged in 1777 in London’s Drury Lane Theatre. In this play, gossip and scandal, fueled by sexual intrigue, dominate the high society and aristocracy of England. Often considered the highlight of the “comedy of manners” plays, Sheridan’s plot delivers a caustic rebuke of the lack of honor, lax morality, and conceits of the idle rich, who spend their time in constant turmoil striving for superior position and advantage amongst themselves and destroying all that surrounds them. 

On-stage seating - general admission. NO LATE SEATING WILL BE PERMITTED.
