Description

Sheridan's most famous play, "The School for Scandal", has been called 'the best existing English comedy of intrigue'. A favourite with audiences and critics alike since its premiere in 1777, this play is a classic English comedy of manners. Full of satirical wit, it subverts the Georgian social mores of its day with subtlety and charm. This historic recording features Edith Evans, Cecil Parker and Harry Andrews: some of the finest actors of their generation.

Review quote

This is a vintage recording of the 1950s production of Sheridan's brilliant and brittle 18th-century comedy of manners. (Sue Arnold, The Guardian)
