One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family. Hardcastle (Steve Pemberton), a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his daughter with his old pal's son with a view to marriage. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin (David Fynn), he's mistaken by his prospective son-in-law Marlow (Harry Hadden-Paton) for an innkeeper, his daughter (Katherine Kelly) for the local barmaid. The good news is, while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he's a charmer with those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle's indignation intensifies, Miss Hardcastle's appreciation for her misguided suitor soars. Misdemeanours multiply, love blossoms, mayhem ensues. Recorded live earlier in 2012, She Stoops to Conquer is directed by Jamie Lloyd. Official Web Site
