She Stoops to Conquer: Mistakes of the Night | [Oliver Goldsmith]

She Stoops to Conquer: Mistakes of the Night

Starring James Marsters, this classic comedy of manners from 1773 is still widely performed and studied. Love, lies, and dysfunctional families. Sound like your last family gathering? Try this one on for laughs. Two randy young gents, Charles and George, set out to woo the alluring and upper-crust Kate and Constance. But inexperienced Charles is shy and clumsy around upper-class ladies, so it’s the barmaid who catches his eye. But is she really who she seems?

Publisher's Summary

Starring James Marsters, this classic comedy of manners from 1773 is still widely performed and studied. Love, lies, and dysfunctional families. Sound like your last family gathering? Try this one on for laughs. Two randy young gents, Charles and George, set out to woo the alluring and upper-crust Kate and Constance. But inexperienced Charles is shy and clumsy around upper-class ladies, so it’s the barmaid who catches his eye. But is she really who she seems? Bawdy high-jinx, popped pretensions, and good dirty fun are the hallmarks of this romping frolic that’s kept audiences laughing for over two centuries.

    "Wonderful performances and production. Fun story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of She Stoops to Conquer to be better than the print version?

    I love old and Restoration theater and you can't do better than this production of "She Stoops to Conquer." First of all, the story is a lot of fun. Then, second to that, the performances in this version are absolutely flawless and wonderful. It is such a delight and so much fun to listen to!!!! I compare this to a BBC version 50 or 60 years ago, and this is superior. If you enjoy a play with fun characters and wonderful situations and dialogue, you will really enjoy this.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of She Stoops to Conquer?

    I just love all the performances and interplays between characters. They hold up as realistic characters even with these times, and all the dialogue is so witty and fun!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I love listening to "She Stoops to Conquer" in smaller segments, over and over. I usually listen when going to bed or walking my dog and this version is absolutely wonderful to listen to then or anytime!


    Any additional comments?

    Great fun! I love listening to this over and over.

    Charles Marlow was my favorite.

    This recording made me laugh.
