She Stoops To Conquer
Friday August 20, £15.00, £14.00 Concessions, £7 Children. At Newark Castle.

It's the 18th century.  Kate Hardcastle is a young lady fixed up to meet the eligible Marlow with a view to marriage. Marlow is a young gent who is tongue-tied with the upper classes and downright lecherous with commoners. So when Marlow is tricked into believing Kate's ancestral home is a country inn, and mistakes Kate for a lowly barmaid what could possibly go wrong?  Plenty!  Set against the increasingly chaotic proceedings of one very long night, 'She Stoops to Conquer' is a delightful romantic romp filled with ludicrous misunderstanding, mischief and mayhem.  So pack your picnic, rugs and chairs, pop open some bubbly and sit back and relax in the summer sunshine, while we whisk you away to the time of big wigs, even bigger dresses, and where fops and foolery abounds!
