She Stoops to Conquer

22nd - 25th October 1997

(by Oliver Goldsmith) The best-loved English comedy of the 18-century mocks the snobbery of London through the manipulations of the country, embodied in Tony Lumpkin. "She Stoops to Conquer" also celebrates the virtues of "laughing comedy," which Goldsmith advocated over the prevalent sentimental forms of his contemporaries.
