SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL is a modern, updated adaptation of the classic English comedy The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan which dates from 1777. The adaptation stays true to his intent, and retained the feel of his language, the adaptation is a work for the stage, not a work of scholarship. Enough liberty with the structure, plot, characters, and language that this is not a new edition of The School for Scandal. Rather, it is a new work, based in a collaboration across 237 years. This adaptation brings the play into the 21st Century by modernizing story telling techniques, replacing exposition with action, reducing the cast size (making production more feasible), deleting extraneous humor of the day based on anti-Semitism and misogyny, and updating the possibilities of gender relationships. Sheridan's distinctive dialog, the overall feel of the language, the playful liveliness, and Sheridan's deep empathy for his characters are preserved. The adaptation premiered in Portland OR in April 2015, produced by Scuttlemagoon Players, directed by William Wilson
