Enhanced ebook edition of The School for Scandal featuring a full cast audio performance of the play, starring Susan Sullivan as Lady Sneerwell.

Beware the gossips! Lady Sneerwell and her hireling Snake are certainly up to no good in this timeless send-up of hypocritical manners. Thanks to their scandal-mongering, the comely Lady Teazle must fend off the slanderous barbs that have caught the ear of her elderly husband - as well as every other gossip in London! What follows is a torrent of mistaken identities and sex-crazed scheming in which the upper classes have never looked so low class.

The ebook also features an interview with director Michael Hackett, Professor of Theater in the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA and Chair of the Department of Theater.

By merging text and audio, this is a perfect learning tool for enhancing comprehension and enjoyment. The text includes plot summaries of each scene, and it is highly recommended as a study aid for students, teachers, actors and directors.

Includes scene-by-scene and word-for-word text and audio of L.A. Theatre Works’ full cast performance starring:
Stuart Bunce as Charles Surface
Jane Carr as Mrs. Candour
John H. Francis as Rowley and others

Moira Quirk as Maria and Maid
