The School for Scandal - RB Sheridan

Thursday 15th August 2024

We are delighted to offer a visit to see a matinee performance (starts 1.15pm) of the School for Scandal at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford upon Avon.

1770s London, where the aristocracy’s morals have plunged lower than the necklines on the women’s gowns. The vicious Lady Sneerwell enjoys ruining reputations for pleasure, and her latest target is the young bachelor Charles Surface – why should this pretentious little rake inherit his uncle’s fortune? Together with Charles’ conniving brother Joseph, Sneerwell orchestrates an elaborate scheme of intrigue and infidelity that’s sure to ruffle all the right feathers – hopefully.

After Shakespeare but long before Bridgerton, there was the School for Scandal, Sheridan’s brilliantly biting comedy of manners in five acts. This new production – styled to the nines with period flair – promises an exuberant feast ofbig wigs and even bigger laughs.”

Price: £65 to include the play ticket (Lunch not included)

We have 30 premium circle seats (at a favourable discount) and those who wish to see the play must have signed up and paid by 15th May as the seats are only held for us by the RSC Box Office until then.

There will also be spaces on the coach for those wishing to just spend the day sightseeing and shopping in Stratford upon Avon; the cost for this will be £20.00.

Your place WILL ONLY be confirmed once payment has been received.

It is advisable that you complete and bring with you an “In Case of Emergency” (ICE) form on the day.  The ICE form can be downloaded by clicking on the button below. The form is a note of your essential medical details in the unfortunate event of an accident, or illness during the visit, when it would be passed to paramedics.  It is not read by any of our Society.
