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.

Listener Opinions

    " Okay, but rather one-note and labored. It doesn't have the delicious wit of The School for Scandal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marceline | 2/17/2014

    " I had to check the dictionary more often compared to when reading regular books. And sometimes, the dictionary doesn't even contain the words from this 1700's comedy! Other than that, it was pretty funny. I bet that it's more hilarious when performed. (Got to check out if there's some on YouTube.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg J. | 2/1/2014

    " This was ok, but not my favorite. I struggled to understand sometimes, but that problem was probably my own and not the book. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny U | 1/30/2014

    " Hilarious! A well written comedy that should be performed on the stage more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/28/2014

    " My dad lent this book to me as a quick read with a cute story. It was definitely a fast read, and the story was enjoyable if extremely silly. Goldsmith really enjoys writing about ridiculous people (see The Vicar of Wakefield). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/17/2014

    " One of the more entertaining required reads from high school, and a lot more light-hearted than most of the things we read. Remember enjoying this quite a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Divya | 1/12/2014

    " A nice light romantic one "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scroutch | 1/7/2014

    " More restoration comedy. Predictable plot, characters, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frederick | 1/5/2014

    " This eighteenth-century British play is full of slapstick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 1/5/2014

    " Cute play. We watched a performance in class that was quite funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmanuel Ekemedo | 12/23/2013

    " Unlike other writers smith has a very special way of appealing to his reader "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrie Francis | 12/17/2013

    " Jane Austen meets Oscar Wilde? But I think they didn't quite get along as well as i'd hoped. Still, I was entertained. A good stage performance might improve it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy Maryan | 12/14/2013

    " To this I adore so much and I am now on the second showing of the screen adaptation, I would read this everyday if I could fit it in, its witty, and its brilliantly written, the setting is amazing I love every character in this book, I would highly recommend it to any avid book reader. "

    " funny, enchanting and brief. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anya | 9/10/2013

    " I didn't expect to like it because of its simple plot and the fact that it was written in the 16th century, but it's pretty funny and has some clever lines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tia | 8/24/2013

    " This book was actually pretty good. I had to read it for class and it read like a Shakespearean comedy. I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 6/21/2013

    " Hilarious case of mistaken identity and tale as old as time: love conquers all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 4/2/2013

    " This was (for me at least) a quick, easy, and enjoyable little play. It was humorous and charming. It felt familiar to me, but I'm not sure if that is because I've read it before, or just because it was easy to follow. Overall a nice little read. "
