Colin Baker (Doctor Who) and Liza Goddard (Bergerac) are coming to the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh in the Birmingham Repertory Theatre production of the classic comedy of manners She Stoops to Conquer from 12 to 16 February.
First performed in 1773, this major revival features a brand new prologue and epilogue by Tony Award winning writer Bryony Lavery.
This celebrated tale of class, courtship and dysfunctional families charts the exploits of two young men, Charles Marlow and George Hastings, and their attempts to court Kate Hardcastle and her friend Constance Neville. A number of delightful deceits, clever schemes, comic ruses and hilarious turns of plot must be played out if the two pending marriages are to conclude happily.
This production is directed by Jonathan Munby
