Gables Art Cinema’s next special event program of live recorded performances from the renowned National Theatre of London, the most nominated company for this year’s Olivier Awards (the U.K.’s Tony’s). The April show is the boisterous revival of Oliver Goldsmith’s period-comedy She Stoops To Conquer, which plays on Saturday & Sunday, April 21 & 22 at 1:00 pm. This play is a satire about love, money, and mistaken identity in 18th-century England, and is surprisingly relevant for today’s contemporary world.
One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family. Oliver Goldsmith’s classic eighteenth century period comedy marries bourgeois etiquette with modern family dysfunction when a wealthy countryman arranges for his daughter’s marriage to the son of a well-to-do Londoner. But thanks to a playboy, what follows is a tale of mistaken identity gone awry as misdemeanors multiply, love blossoms, and mayhem ensues. The Daily Telegraph calls it, “Fresh, spirited, blissfully funny” and the Sunday Express says its “A rollicking fantastically funny production.” She Stoops To Conquer runs two hours and twenty minutes including a twenty minute intermission.
