    In , She Stoops to Conquer, a comedy in five acts by Anglo-Irish playwright and novelist Oliver Goldsmith, debuted in London. The play has amused audiences for over two centuries since then. When I heard that the play was coming to Baltimore, I hurried to the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company downtown to find out about the revival of this uproariously funny classical piece. Oliver Goldsmith (10 November – 4 April ) was an Irish novelist, playwright and poet, who is best known for his novelThe Vicar of Wakefield (), his pastoral poem The Deserted Village (), and his plays The Good-Natur'd Man () and She Stoops to Conquer .

    Goldsmith's The deserted village, and other poems, together with She stoops to conquer and The good-natured man; by Goldsmith, Oliver, ? ; Whiteford, Robert Naylor, ed. Ans: She Stoops to Conquer can also be seen as a soft satire, where characters are presented as either ludicrous or a comedy might leave the impression that the characters are either too foolish or corrupt to ever reform. Through farcical humour, Goldsmith ridicules the craze for fashion in Mrs Hardcastle, spoiled child in Tony Lumpkin, duel personality in Marlow, the class.

    She stoops to conquer: or, the mistakes of a night. A comedy, by Dr. Goldsmith. Adapted for theatrical representation, as performed at the Theatres-Royal, Drury-Lane and Covent-Garden. Regulated from the prompt-books, by permission of the managers. In a short period they created three plays that are still enjoyed today: She Stoops to Conquer (Goldsmith, ), The School for Scandal (Sheridan, ) and The Rivals (Sheridan, ). In recent months I have read all three play. All are quite good, but I especially liked She Stoops to Conquer and The School for Scandal.
