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.

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.
