THEATRE FOR SCANDAL by Bernard J Taylor

£6.00

THEATRE FOR SCANDAL is a comedy loosely inspired by Sheridan’s School for Scandal. It involves a group of actors who begin to spread rumorus that one of the most flamboyantly gay members of their group is secretly straight. The character of Anthony Hamilton has the potential to become iconic, while confounding stereotypes when he plots to wreak vengeance on a macho stud who has betrayed a female friend.
