I have seen this play before so I am not new to it. I did not like this version because it was very overdone, overplayed and some of the characters miscast. Sheridan is supposed to be over the top, but this was too much. Tom Story should not have been cast as a woman -- it did not work.
The School for Scandal
By Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Directed by Richard Clifford
True loves and true characters are revealed amid gossip, clever pretenses, and ostensibly compromising situations. It's all Surface and Candour in this witty comedy of very bad manners and irresistible folly. This classic, which premiered in London in 1777, is Sheridan's crowning achievement.
