The School for Scandal
Directed by Alan Stanford, Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The School for Scandal is widely considered a comic masterpiece of the Restoration Period with witty dialogue, hidden identities, and appropriately scandalous, slanderous, and scheming characters. This comedy of manners (both good and bad!) still feels fresh after 235 years.
