The Swan Theatre Company presents

She Stoops To Conquer

By Oliver Goldsmith
Directed by Andy Wood

Monday 17th - Saturday 22nd March

 Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.

Young Charles Marlow enjoys the company of barmaids, but is nervous and tongue-tied in the presence of ladies of wit and education. A trip to the country to meet Kate Hardcastle, the lady his father wants him to marry, results in mistakes and misunderstandings, mischief and mayhem.

Goldsmith's fast-moving romantic comedy was first performed in London in 1773. With its gallery of unforgettable comic characters, it is a genuine 18th century classic: hilarious and heart-warming.

SOLD OUT - next production is '45 Minutes' by Anya Reiss Wed 26th-Sat 29th March.
