She Stoops to Conquer at the New Wimbledon Theatre

New Wimbledon Theatre
Address: 93 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London SW19 1QG, UK

Wimbledon’s oldest amateur theatre group, Carlton, is excited to present Oliver Goldsmith’s renowned 18th Century comedy She Stoops to Conquer directed by Patrick Briône.

In the play, Charles Marlow has been invited to visit the Hardcastles’ country home in order to consider engagement to Mr Hardcastle’s daughter Kate.

On the way, however, Marlow and his companion Hastings are waylaid by Kate’s step-brother Tony, a practical joker who convinces them that the Hardcastle house is, in fact, a country inn where they will need to spend the night before continuing on their journey.

Confusion reigns as Marlow takes Mr Hardcastle for a presumptuous innkeeper and Kate for the local barmaid, an error she happily plays along with to trick him into discarding his shy and formal public demeanour and revealing the rogue beneath.

Kate’s cousin Constance, meanwhile, plots to elope with Hastings but first needs to steal her jewels out from under the nose of her controlling aunt, Mrs Hardcastle. Will the mistakes of a night be uncovered before it’s too late?

Often described as a laugh-packed comedy of very English manners and mistakes, this comedy is bound to keep you smiling from Tuesday 14th May at the New Wimbledon Theatre. Click here for tickets and more information.
