    Abstract:
    Between 1776 and 1800 -- at the end of Garrick's reign at Drury and the rise of Edmund Kean -- the shape of Europe, the role of women in the public sphere, and even the size of London’s patent theatres underwent renovation and reconstitution. The results often wore familiar faces, even as meaning was changed by new contexts and editorial flourish. In this spirit of adaptation, this chapter considers the most popular comedy of the late eighteenth-century, Sheridan’s The School for Scandal (1777), and the plays and prose pieces throughout the eighteenth-century that bore the same title convention.
