FlagShakes: She Stoops To Conquer
September 17-19 & 26-27
A plot of arranged marriage and mistaken identities makes this play one of the most famous of the Restoration comedies. Two young men take bawdy advantage of an inn and its keepers without realizing they’ve actually arrived at their bride-to-be’s home. Unaware of the blunder, the women of the house conjure equally outrageous behavior to seduce the oblivious fools. No stone is left untripped-over in this stumble through young love. But not to worry, true to the nature of Restoration comedies, love rights all mischiefs.
