Charming satire of the sentimental comedies of the day has entertained audiences since 1773.

Many delightful deceits, hilarious turns of plot must be played out before the play concludes happily. Notes.

Review:

Oliver Goldsmith's comedy was a milestone: yes, it's fast and funny, almost farcical at times, a great night out, and so on, but it's also a psychological masterpiece written at the time when English society began its stately progress towards its admirable class system. Sunday Times "A bomproof comedy...Oliver Goldsmith's play is about the clash between town and country, between varying degrees of pretension." Robert Dawson Scott, The Times, 04.06.08 'Against Sean Crowley's elegant blank canvas of a set, which allows a home to be mistaken for an inn, Goldsmith's themes of class and snobbery unfold with delicious clarity. The performances are both ticklish and sophisticated - the actors step outside the action to address the audience directly - and yet played for traditional laughs and tremendous relish.' Elisabeth Mahoney, Gaurdian, 01 May 2009 --Gaurdian

From the Back Cover:

When the mischievous Tony Lumpkin directs two young gentlemen in need of accommodation to his parent's house, telling them that it is an inn, his practical joke leads to a night of misunderstanding, embarrassment and confusion for all concerned. First staged in 1773, 'She Stoops to Conquer'; or, 'The Mistakes of a Night' quickly established itself as one of the most popular English comedies.

Alistair Sim and Claire Bloom head the cast in a lively performance directed by Howard Sackler.

"I know of no comedy for many years that has so much exhilarated an audience, that has answered so much the great end of comedy – making an audience merry."
SAMUEL JOHNSON
