The School for Scandal

April 2008
by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Directed by John Hull

Sheridan’s rowdy comedy about gossip, deceit and misjudgment is a fast paced romp. Two brothers seem complete opposites. One is a studious and sober while the other parties away every night spending borrowed money. When their rich uncle returns after a long sojourn in the East he assumes false identities to check up on them. Meanwhile an old man married to a young woman has suspicions about her. All the while the gossips wag their scandalous tongues. Updated from its original 1777 setting to swinging London of the 1960s, Maria Graham’s costumes bring a vibrant brightness to the show, presented “arena style” for close up viewing.
