The School for Scandal

Richard Brinsley Sheridan
LA Theatre Works
Directed by Michael Hackett

Beware the gossips! Lady Sneerwell and her hireling Snake are certainly up to no good in this timeless send-up of hypocritical manners. Thanks to their scandal-mongering, the comely Lady Teazle must fend off the slanderous barbs that have caught the ear of her elderly husband―as well as every other gossip in London.
