Hardcastle, a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his daughter with his old pal’s son with a view to marriage. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin, he’s mistaken by his prospective son-in-law Marlow for an innkeeper, his daughter for the local barmaid. The good news is, while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he’s a charmer with those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle’s indignation intensifies, Miss Hardcastle’s appreciation for her misguided suitor soars. Misdemeanours multiply, love blossoms, mayhem ensues.

One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

The talented cast includes David Fynn (TV show ‘Doctor Who’ and the 2010 film ‘Leap Year’), Steve Pemberton (‘Mr. Bean’s Holiday’ and a ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’) and Sophie Thompson (‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ and ‘Gosford Park’).

The show begins at 7:00 pm. For a full list of the cast and to purchase tickets, please visit the Rockport Music Website.
