The School for Scandal is a restoration comedy from the 18th century, written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. The play surrounds the plotting of Lady Sneerwell, a gossiper and founder of The School for Scandal, to spread false rumors about an affair between Charles Surface and Lady Teazle, so that she can marry the honorable Charles. In reality, it is Charles’ hypocritical brother, Joseph, who is trying to start a relationship with Lady Teazle. Meanwhile, both Charles and Joseph are courting Sir Peter Teazle’s ward, Maria. However, when the Surface’s uncle, Sir Oliver, arrives so that he can decide whether to leave his large inheritance to Charles or Joseph, the true character of each brother is revealed.

The play is directed by Dr. David Kuhns, professor of Humanities and Theatre. Kuhns has acted under the University of Pittsburgh theatre department, Three Rivers Shakespeare Festival and The Parable Players. In addition, Kuhns’ has previously directed Macbeth, Waiting for Godot, a Midsummer Night’s Dream, Beloved Friends and The Real Inspector Hound in Geneva theatre.
