"She Stoops to Conquer" by Oliver Goldsmith

Theater One of the most popular comedies of all time, She Stoops to Conquer centers on the misadventures of Marlow, a young gentleman who can barely speak to genteel ladies but easily flirts with lower-class women. Enter Kate Hardcastle, a cousin of Shakespeare’s resourceful comic heroines, who conquers—and reforms—our callow hero by stooping to the disguise of a serving girl. Subtitled The Mistakes of a Night, Goldsmith’s play abounds with pranks and deceptions and some of the most memorable comic characters ever created. Directed by Dennis Smith.
