The School for Scandal
Amateur Theatre in Wolverhampton
School for scandal significant of names. I think that Scandal is the main word here. In a part of English high society where gossip runs rampant, a tangle of love has formed. Lady Sneerwell is in love with a young, rebellious man named Charles Surface.
The School for Scandal was written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, with a prologue by the famous actor David Garrick, and was first performed in But as the play progresses and the scandal-mongering backfires, the tables are turned on the siblings. With its themes of deceit, pride, love, gossip and capriciousness, The School for Scandal is one of the most enduring of all theatre classics. Above all, it shows how appearances can be deceptive, and provides much else in terms of revelation and enjoyment along the way. Often hailed as the best comedy of manners in English, The School for Scandal has been a crowd-pleaser for centuries. In addition, its themes resonate even or perhaps especially today.
