Produced by Harriet Usher for Red Handed Theatre Company
Red Handed Theatre Company
The School for Scandal
By Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Directed by Jessica Swale
"The London gossip scene is buzzing. Masquerading behind the veneer of polite society, malicious prattlers trade gossip like gamblers and ruin reputations for sport. In The School for Scandal one thing is certain- no-one is safe.
But let’s be honest, what could be more fun than an evening with these devilish double dealers? After all, who doesn’t love a good scandal?
Sheridan’s most popular comedy is revived by Jessica Swale (Evening Standard Award nominee) in this sparkling period production."
‘Jessica Swale is rapidly becoming our best young director of period comedy’. Michael Billington The Guardian
