By Oliver Goldsmith With a new prologue and epilogue by Bryony Lavery

Oliver Goldsmith's classic comedy of manners has delighted audiences for over two centuries.

First performed in 1773, She Stoops To Conquer is a rumbustious story about two young men, Charles Marlow and George Hastings and their attempts to court Kate Hardcastle and her friend Constance Neville.

A number of delightful deceits, clever schemes, comic ruses and hilarious turns of plot must be played out if the two pending marriages are to conclude happily. Along the way, there is an abundance of merry mix-ups, bawdy dialogue, much sly satire of the times and one of the great characters of the stage, Tony Lumpkin.

Leading the cast is one of the country's most accomplished comedy actresses Liza Goddard. Joining her as Squire Hardcastle is Colin Baker.
