Directed by Christina Ritter 

THIS PERFORMANCE WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE GUIGNOL THEATRE LOCATED IN THE FINE ARTS BUILDING (465 ROSE STREET)

The comedic, satirical play, 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.
