by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Directed by Roger Haines

Performances: Sun 3rd – Sat 9th May 1970, Theatre


The play is set variously in the houses of Lady Sneerwell, Sir Peter Teale and Charles Surface.

There were two intervals of 15 minutes each.




South London Theatre Centre is exactly two and a half years old. In all its history I can recall no more promising an opening than Roger Haines gives us in this week's production of "The School for Scandal".

Here we are in Sheridan's immortal gossip-shop, as realised in a simple and unfussy set designed by D'Auvergine Barnard, and graced by some really lovely costumes by Margaret Leech.

The scene is no more than a few speeches old before we sense we are in the hands of a producer who understands what Augustan comedy is all about.
