'The Critic: or, a Tragedy Rehearsed' is a political and literary satire, following in the vein of George Villiers' 'The Rehearsal' (1671), which takes jovial aim at the vanities of authors and politicians and at the foibles of the theatre itself.

"The three plays collected in this volume demonstrate Sheridan's unerring ability to create ingenious plots, witty repartee, farcical situations and flamboyant characters. And while he never overtly moralizes, Sheridan uses brilliant comedy to deflate hypocrisy and satirize the manners of his age. In The Rivals, Captain Absolute becomes his own rival for the hand of Lydia Languish - wooing her under another name, while her aunt, the verbally inept Mrs Malaprop, wishes her to marry the real Captain. The Critic, featuring the pompous Puff and the arrogant Sneer, is a mocking depiction of the theatre, playwrights and, of course, critics. And The School for Scandal continues the theme of imposture when Sir Oliver Surface tests his nephews by appearing before them in disguise, and learns that reputation and the approval of society are of little value." "In his introduction, Eric S. Rump places the plays in their historical and dramatic context and examines their enduring popularity. This edition also includes notes and an appendix entitled 'Lydia's Books'."--Jacket

The School for Scandal is a comedy of manners written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. It was first performed in London at Drury Lane Theatre on May 18, 1777. With principal themes of "the deceptive nature of appearances, the fickleness of reputation, [and] the often disreputable guises behind which goodness and honesty can conceal itself," it has been noted that "The play remains to this day a crowd-pleaser and one of the standard repertory pieces in our dramatic literature.".
