Abstract:
First performed in 1777, Richard Brinsley Sheridan's sophisticated comedy of manners satirizes the extravagance and corruption of London society. "The School for Scandal's" combination of elegant language and earthy comedy weaves a deliciously nasty tale of intrigue, slander and clandestine love affairs. Blair Brown stars in this timeless, witty look at the wages of scandal mongering and social climbing, scheming and hypocrisy.

Summary

Summary

An upper crust's sharp tongue has a negative impact on those who surround her in this adaptation of Richard Sheridan's popular comedy of manners. Noted for her quick wit and equally speedy willingness to sink reputations without a second thought, Lady Sneerwell soon finds that all of her gossiping has more of an impact on her acquaintances than she may have previously thought. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
