The School for Scandal

Sheridan’s sensational satire invites you into a world of gossip and rumour where truth is never allowed to get in the way of a good story.

18th Century London is a world of sexual gossip, extravagance and greed. Bankrupt in fortune and reputation, Charles Surface, a gambler and charmer, seems a stark contrast to his honest and respected brother Joseph. Yet in a world of reputation and rumour all may not be as it seems. Left under the charge of Sir Peter Teazle by their wealthy uncle, the only thing the brothers seem to have in common is their interest in the young heiress, Maria. Conspiring with the malicious and scheming Lady Sneerwell is Joseph really interested in love? When their rich uncle returns from India unrecognized and determined to test the brothers’ character, can bold invention triumph over truth?

Written by Belvedere Pashun

This play features Richard Burton, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Ralph Richardson and Sir Laurence Olivier. The story is based on true events which took place during the filming of ‘WAGNER’, the eight hour bio-epic from director Tony Palmer in 1982. This film was the one and only occasion when all four stage and screen legends featured in a motion picture together. Our play is inspired by a dinner party held by Richard Burton for the three knights in April 1982 at the famous Palais Schwarzenberg, Austria. Burton had at one time been lauded as the heir apparent to Olivier but in the eyes of many he squandered his rare talent in pursuit of fame, celebrity, privilege, wealth…and women.
