SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER
Blue Sky Theatre

Comedy

Written By: Oliver Goldsmith
Directed By: Dave Simms

A dizzying delight of romantic entanglements and outrageous behaviour.

Open Gardens SA and Blue Sky Theatre are presenting She Stoops to Conquer in gardens over four weekends this coming summer.

Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is terribly shy. He can hardly get a sentence out around her, but he exudes confidence around her maid. So, what if she poses as a barmaid to get to know him?

Her meddling step-mother, blusterous father, and rascally step-brother get drawn into the plot twists and turns in order to conceal her identity.

Amidst this madcap mayhem, can Kate convince Charlie Marlow to love her for who she really is?

Blue Sky Theatre will set Oliver Goldsmith’s warm-hearted 18th century romp in the giddy world of the roaring twenties.

Join us for a picnic in four glorious gardens to enjoy a spirited feast of martinis, jazz and family mix-ups guaranteed to keep you laughing through the chaos.
