“Think snark, trolling and fake news are innovations of the social media age?”

Putney Theatre Company presents The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

Performance dates:  Saturday 17 July, Sunday 18 July, Saturday 24 July & Sunday 25 July 2021, 3.00pm (Putney Old Burial Ground)

You are warmly invited to join us for PTCs first in-person production since lockdown!

The safety and health of our audience, cast & crew are of paramount importance to us.

Weather permitting & in the absence of other unforeseen events, the production will take place at Putney Old Burial Ground, in a socially distanced performance.  

The London of Sheridan’s rollicking 18th-century comedy is awash with gossip, innuendo and muckraking. Devious influencer Lady Sneerwell, abetted by her spin-doctor, Snake, is orchestrating a whispering campaign against warm-hearted playboy, Charles Surface, seeking to discredit him in the eyes of Maria, wealthy ward of Sir Peter Teazle.

Meanwhile, rumour has it that Sir Peter’s marriage to his vivacious young wife is on the rocks, with the ink practically still wet on the licence. Will disgrace, dispossession, and divorce ensue? Or will Charles’s Aunt Olivia, returned from abroad and carrying out undercover investigations, discover the truth in time? Putney Theatre Company presents an abridged, high-energy, modern dress version of this glorious classic in the open air.
