Sheridan's comedy The School for Scandal follows Oliver Surface, who, after 16 years abroad, returns home incognito to test the true characters of his nephews, Charles and Joseph. Meanwhile, he discovers his old friend Peter Teazle has wed a young country wife and is being victimized in print and society by a spiteful team of rumor-mongers.
