Genre: Comedy
By Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Directed by Henry Wishcamper

First produced at London's Drury Lane Theater in the spring of 1777, THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL brings to life the story of the wealthy, middle-aged bachelor, Sir Peter Teazle, who has married the young and comely daughter of a country squire. Lady Teazle finds that the society of which she's now a part is full of malicious gossip that no one can escape. Thought to be the greatest comedy of manners in the English language (Encyclopedia Brittanica), THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL satirizes our insatiable "need to know". Centuries before Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake, and The National Enquirer appeared on the scene, Sheridan gave us such gossip-mongers as Lady Sneerwell, Snake, Mrs. Candor, and Benjamin Backbite.
