The School for Scandal

By Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

A classic comedy of manners, ridiculing affectation and pretentiousness.

Joseph Surface is apparently a model citizen; his brother Charles is a dissolute wastrel. But when the schemings of the scandalmongers go awry, the reverse is shown to be true.

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's play The School for Scandal was first performed in London at Drury Lane Theatre in 1777.

This edition, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is edited and introduced by Colin Counsell.
