The School for Scandal
by Classic Theatre of San Antonio
Nov. 04 - Nov. 27, 2016
“School for Scandal is a play obsessed by wit, fashion, celebrity and reputation, and whose central theme is hypocrisy. Does that ring any contemporary bells?"-D. Warner
Acts of outrageous misconduct have always been with us. Today we have BuzzFeed, TMZ, and Facebook to give us all the latest scandals, but even in the 1700’s, gossip was a hot commodity. And what’s wrong with a little rumor? Does your reputation really matter? In this updated comedy of manners, we delve into a social network of outrageous gossip and lustful deceit. A long lost uncle, Sir Oliver, returns home in disguise to examine the true nature of his nephews, only to find his dear friend Peter Teazle in marital anguish, being persecuted by a malicious team of fools and scandal-mongers. What's a man to do? San Antonio favorites John O’Neill and Christi Eanes take the stage.
"We revive old plays because we think they may have something to say to us now. The School for Scandal is a play obsessed by wit, fashion, celebrity and reputation, and whose central theme is hypocrisy. Does that ring any contemporary bells?" Deborah Warner, Director, Barbican Theatre.
