She Stoops to Conquer
The Mistakes of a Night; A Comedy
(If any tax is payable it will be calculated and shown at checkout.)
Oliver Goldsmith's comedy She Stoops to Conquer was first performed in London in 1773. It is both a good-humored comedy and a satire on social manners. A country gentleman, Mr. Hardcastle, plans to have his daughter Kate marry to Charles Marlow, the son of a wealthy aristocrat. Marlow is nervous amongst women of his own class but feels easy amongst serving girls. When they meet, Kate realizes she will have to act as a common girl to marry Marlow and thus poses as a barmaid.
