She Stoops to Conquer, 8pm
By Oliver Goldsmith
September 28 – October 21, 2018
“Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no fibs.”
Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Lady Kate for a serving maid – and she decides to play along. Enjoy a bawdy, witty, comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups from the 1700s.
