The Broadway Theatre Archive presents another program in its series of televised plays from the 60s to the 80s. In his sophisticated comedy of manners, The School For Scandal, Richard Brinsley Sheridan satirizes the corruption and extravagance of upper crust London society. This tale of slander, intrigue and secret love affairs combines low comedy with the English love of language to create a unique and witty take on social classes and antisocial behaviour.
