Our November 2015 production is to be

The School for Scandal
by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Directed by Tania M. C. Lewis

The School for Scandal

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 'The School for Scandal' is the story of one woman's quest to destroy the relationship of two characters.

Lady Sneerwell, is plotting the emotional destruction of Charles Surface and Maria.
Lady Sneerwell and her friends gossip and fill their time by entertaining themselves with slander.

A parallel plot about the marriage between Sir Peter and his young, innocent wife, whom he currently is having doubts about adds extra hilarity.
Sir Peter believes that his wife, Lady Teazle, is too childish, spending money lavishly without reason.
Lady Teazle might wish her husband dead, but what will she do in the mean time?

Add to the mix a moneylender named Moses and the surprise visit by an Uncle from a distant land and who can guess what chaos will ensue?

By the end of 'The School for Scandal,' everyone gets their just desserts; but since all is not as it seems in the first place who will get their happy ending?

An 18th Century comedy romp that will keep you laughing for the next 250 years.
