A scandal of epic proportions

Jan 10, 2023

Changeling Theatre is staging The School for Scandal across Kent for its annual outdoor tour in 2023. The play is Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s comedy of manners masterpiece about love, deception and scandal.

The play centres around four key characters: Lady Sneerwell who is in love with Charles who’s in love with Maria. Joseph who is in love with Maria who’s in love with Charles. Confused? You will be!

Would-be suitors Lady Sneerwell and Joseph devise a plot to ruin Charles and Maria’s relationship through gossip and lies. Creating a scandal of epic proportions.

Sheridan’s meticulously crafted play is a razor sharp, highly entertaining comedy – a perfect choice for us we think you’ll agree.

2023 marks Changeling’s 22nd year of outdoor touring since we first toured Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream back in 2001.This summer we’re touring a comedy double bill for the first time – The School for Scandal and William Shakespeare’s early play Love’s Labour’s Lost.

Play venues, dates and booking details for both shows will be released in March this year.
