School for Scandal, The

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.
