Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Miss Hardcastle for a serving maid. In that bygone era before a lady could get a background check of her suitor through Google, Miss Hardcastle seizes her chance to go undercover to learn more about Marlow, the man her dad hopes she'll marry.
Enjoy a bawdy, witty, comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups. First performed in 1773, She Stoops to Conquer broke new ground, steering British comedy away from the sentimental or genteel, and giving the audience a "low" or "laughing comedy" with sass, comic mayhem, and jokes that skewered society's pretensions.
A smash hit at its debut, She Stoops to Conquer still delivers the laughs. "This is a comedy of its time, for all time," says The New York Times.
APPROPRIATENESS: High school and up (it’s bawdy)
