She Stoops to Conquer


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Jamie Lloyd directs Oliver Goldsmith's play.

The cast includes David Fynn, Harry Hadden-Paton, John Heffernan, Cush Jumbo, Katherine Kelly (Kate Hardcastle), Steve Pemberton (Mr Hardcastle), Gavin Spokes and Sophie Thompson (Mrs Hardcastle).

One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

Hardcastle, a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his daughter with his old pal's son with a view to marriage. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin, he's mistaken by his prospective son-in-law Marlow for an innkeeper, his daughter for the local barmaid. The good news is, while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he's a charmer with those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle's indignation intensifies, Miss Hardcastle's appreciation for her misguided suitor soars. Misdemeanours multiply, love blossoms, mayhem ensues.
