The Reduced School for Scandal -- Winter 2011

s4sposterwebDirected by Simon Pell

Winter 2011

A reduced version of Sheridan's comedy of manners The School for Scandal, adapted by Simon Pell, was the winter touring production in 2011.

This classic tale of confusion and deception saw the sceaming Joseph Surface unmasked as a bounder and his well-meaning but misunderstood brother Charles triumph in love. Throw in characters including Sir Peter and Lady Teazle, Lady Sneerwell, Snake and Mrs Candour and The Castle Players delivered a great evening of 18th century entertainment.
