SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER
This classic period comedy marries bourgeois etiquette with modern family dysfunction as wealthy countryman Hardcastle arranges for his daughter Kate to marry the son of a well-to-do Londoner. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin, what follows is a tale of mistaken identity gone awry. Kate’s appreciation for her misguided suitor soars while offenses multiply, mayhem ensues, and love eventually blossoms.
One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, the National Theatres’ production of She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.
