"Entertaining and clever production" THE STAGE

She Stoops to Conquer

Charles Marlow, a well-bred young man from London, is beset with a stutter and a quiver when in the presence of elegant and educated young women. When his father sets him up with his old friend’s eligible daughter, he is totally tongue tied - but Miss Hardcastle is charmed by her gibbering suitor and employs an unexpected tactic to put him at his ease.   

Meanwhile, the ridiculous muppet, Tony Lumpkin, on meeting Marlow and his dashing friend Hastings, leads them to believe that old Mr Hardcastle’s country house is actually an inn and the man of the house is the inn keeper.  Mayhem and confusion ensue as the young men demand to be waited upon by a bewildered and increasingly outraged host.  

This is a delightful comedy written by Oliver Goldsmith in 1773 in which a plethora of mistakes and misunderstandings create a heart -warming and hilarious evening of classic theatre.
