The School for Scandal has delighted audiences around the world for more than two centuries. Laurence Olivier, Vivian Leigh, Ralph Richardson and John Geilgud are a few of the famous actors who played it. (It was the first play in which Olivier and Leigh appeared together.) It remains a comic classic, with a combination of wit and slapstick, irony and farce—and with a few observations to make on how we live our lives, what we do versus what we say, and what true virtue might turn out to be.
THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL, , Sheridan’s comedy of gossip, wit and mayhem comes to the Humboldt State University Gist Hall stage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 PM, November 30-December 2, and December 7-9. $10 general, $8 students/seniors, limited free seats to HSU students. HSU ticket office: 826-3928. Directed by Clint Rebik; an HSU Department of Theatre, Film & Dance production.
