Issue:- 5 December 2014

Review:- "She Stoops to Conquer" at the Empire, Liverpool
Review by Jo Forrest.

THERE is very little you can say about this... Town and Country, old and new collide at Mr Hardcastle's ancestral home; the shabby and unchic Liberty Hall. Confined within these provincial walls the excessively coiffured Mrs Hardcastle pines for the cultural polish of 'The Capital'. Enter the good looking and eligible Young Marlow; potential suitor to the quick witted and resolute Miss Kate Hardcastle. He is a man; hopelessly tongue tied with toffs and positively improper with plebs. She is a woman; sharp, sassy and in complete control. So when he is duped into believing that Liberty Hall is a country inn, and mistakes Kate for a lowly barmaid what could possibly go wrong? 'She Stoops to Conquer' is a comedy by Irish author Oliver Goldsmith that was 1st performed in Covent Garden, London in 1773. The cast performing to a packed theatre at the Empire and delighted the audience with this satirical play, set against the increasingly chaotic proceedings of one very long night, this was a delightful romantic romp filled with ludicrous misunderstanding, mischief and mayhem. Fantastic cast and a fullerly enjoyable performance.
