She Stoops To Conquer

About the play

The action of She Stoops to Conquer is largely confined to a night and a day in Squire Hardcastle’s somewhat dilapidated country house: Young Marlow, on his way there to meet the bride his father has chosen for him, loses his way and arrives at the house assuming it is an inn. The prospect of meeting the genteel Miss Hardcastle terrifies the diffident youngster; but the serving-girl Kate – in fact, Miss Hardcastle, who chooses not to clarify the misunderstanding – immediately catches his fancy and cannot complain of a lack of ardour in her well-born suitor. After a series of trifling confusions and the inevitable eavesdropping-from-behind-a-screen, all is resolved.
