Overview
Locations

She Stoops to Conquer is a classic, hilarious tale about a young and refined girl, Kate Hardcastle, who has her eye on the very wealthy, but very socially awkward, Charles Marlow. Kate hears through the grapevine that Charles is more relaxed around "common" girls, so she and her friend, Constance, devise a plan to disguise herself as a barmaid and pretend her house is an Inn. Pranks, practical jokes, and tomfoolery ensure the plot unravels and the truth is revealed. Although the play was written in 1771, this satirical comedy of errors has stood the test of time with the heart of its moral focused on the humility of true love: "The prostrate lover when he lowest lies, but stoops to conquer, but kneels to rise."
