She Stoops to Conquer

Written by Oliver Goldsmith
Directed by Jerrold Scott

When two young city gentlemen pursue romance in the country they come up against more than they bargained for in this insightful and witty romantic romp. It’s city vs. country, men vs. women, and parents vs. children—with love conquering all—in one of the most popular British comedies of all time.
