The School for Scandal archiveAt the height of eighteenth century London, the truth is a rare commodity. Rumour, gossip and backbiting abound in Richard Sheridan's classic, The School for Scandal. In the elegant salons of the upper classes, a tight-knit web of glamorous socialites, led by the incorrigible Lady Sneerwell, enjoy everything from a quiet game of Piquet to an outrageously fabricated character assassination. When the wealthy Sir Oliver returns to select which of his wayward nephews is to become his heir, he is unwittingly plunged into this dissolute world, where morality takes second place to double-crossing, intrigue and downright skulduggery. With a gabble of busy-bodies interfering in his task - the vivacious Lady Teazle, the lovable Sir Peter and the amorous Backbite - will Sir Oliver discover which of his nephews is worthy to be his heir, or will he be deceived by cleverly constructed appearances?

Saw it last night at Darlington, it was the last night and the audience was a bit down. The actors however gave their all and as I have no previous experience of the play it took a while to work out who the characters were. There were some very funny moments and as I could work out who was who it was more enjoyable. Would I recommend it... of course I would... it's a great piece of live theatre well performed by excellent actors. I see a lot of live theatre... I wish more people would go along it's better value than a football game and a lot more fun... and no one got sent off!!!!
