SYNOPSIS OVERVIEW

“Smile at the jest which plants a thorn in another’s breast”

Lady Sneerwell is in love with Charles who’s in love with Maria. Joseph is in love with Maria who’s in love with Charles. Clearly, all is not peachy on the romantic front. 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 satirical comedy. In the age of fake news this is the play to see. It will have you in stitches from beginning to end!
