Production Description
What’s wrong with a little rumor?

In this comic masterpiece, Sheridan mercilessly dissects a social network of grotesques, gossips, lustful hypocrites and anonymous assassins of reputation who live in a world without privacy, morality or taste.

After seventeen years abroad Oliver Surface returns home incognito to test the true characters of his nephews, Charles (a prodigal, apparently), and Joseph (a paragon, supposedly.) Meanwhile he discovers his old friend Peter Teazle has wed a young country wife and is in marital purgatory, being victimized in print and society by a spiteful team of imbeciles and rumor-mongers.

Fun for the whole family.
