Revue de presse
I know of no comedy for many years that has so much exhilarated an audience; that has answered so much the great end of comedy - making an audience merry. --From Boswell's Life of Johnson on Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer.
Fresh, spirited and often blissfully funny...The play is a marvel, a comedy almost entirely bereft of malice, but one that never seems twee, sentimental or bland. --Evening Standard on the 2012 National Theatre production.
She Stoops to Conquer is almost 240 years old, but Oliver Goldsmith's tightly plotted play seems wonderfully youthful in this fizzy production. --Daily Mail on the 2012 National Theatre production.
Présentation de l'éditeur
"She Stoops to Conquer" is the comedic drama that depicts the story of Charles Marlow, a wealthy young man who is promised to a woman that he has never met. While he is eager to meet her, Charles is quite shy in the company of women of wealth, however in the company of women of the lower classes he transforms into a lecherous rogue. Learning of this, Kate Hardcastle, the woman he is promised too, pretends to be a serving-maid in order to win Charles's affections. "She Stoops to Conquer" is a charming and light-hearted play.
