by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Directed by Simon Gleisner

Performances: Tue 7th - Sat 11th October (2008), Bell Theatre


Sheridan's outrageous comedy of innuendo, love, sex, lies, gossip and scandal is as relevant today as it was two hundred years ago - if not more so. Sir Peter Teazle has taken himself a young country wife, which has caught the attention of society scandalmongers - the vengeful Lady Sneerwell, the two-faced Mrs Candour, the amorous Sir Benjamin Backbite and his malicious Uncle Crabtree. When it is suspected that Lady Teazle may have taken a lover, the joyful malice goes into overdrive. Affairs, indiscretions and intrigue ensue as these dealers in falsehood deliver human pain and accidental happiness in abundance.
