WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

She Stoops to Conquer is about Young Marlowe and Kate Hardcastle, a couple who have never met but whose parents have arranged for their marriage. Young Marlowe, literally struck dumb in Kate's presence mistakes her for a barmaid and her father's house for an inn. Kate takes advantage of the misunderstanding to break down his reserve. Inept servants add to the mix-ups, and the mistakes of the night are pleasantly corrected at the final tableau.
