or, Schooled in Scandal
A Play in Two Acts
6M, 3F (doubling)
Set in a London rife with gossip, blackmail and political intrigue during the reign of mad King George III, this darkly comic tale follows the development of the friendship between famed playwright, theatre manager and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan and young poet Lord Byron. In this complicated world where everybody seems to be doing the wrong thing for the wrong reason, Sheridan comes to confront the classic choice between doing the right thing and suffering personally, or betraying his conscience and profiting from it.
