    " School for Scandal is brilliant. I got to see it performed after I read it and I enjoyed both experiences immensely. Got to love the verbal sparring. "

    " I was surprised at how much humor there was in The School for Scandal, even if the plot didn't really make sense to me and also didn't seem complete. I couldn't get a good sense of some of the characters, especially Joseph Surface, and was rather disappointed with the ending. "

    " Good fun but it's got nothing on Wilde's social comedies. Though I wouldn't put it past Wilde to have pilfered a few ideas from Sheridan for his own works. I'm thinking of Lady Windermere's Fan and An Ideal Husband in particular. "
