She Stoops to Conquer (May 1-17, 2003)

A Farce by Oliver Goldsmith

“Witty . Charming! . Entertaining!”

A wonderful rollicking Restoration comedy! Eighteenth century England comes to life in this riotously funny comedy of manners. Two well-to-do young gentlemen, Marlow and Hastings, mistake the baronial country home of Squire Hardcastle for a roadside inn. As they meet the family so they treat them as employees of a common public house. The ensuing situations become hilarious. In retaliation, Kate, the beautiful and clever daughter of the house, disguises herself as a servant, and in so-doing becomes a true conqueror when she acquires a handsome and wealthy young husband.
