The Lees-McRae Division of Creative and Fine Arts will present the 1773 British comedy She Stoops to Conquer Febuary 26 - March 1 in Hayes Auditorium.

Written by Oliver Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer is one of the most often produced plays of its time. Mr. Hardcastle is hoping his daughter, Kate, will marry young Marlow, the son of his old friend, but the son gets so nervous around women of his own social class that he makes a fool of himself even trying to carry on a simple conversation. Kate’s mischievous step-brother, Tony, fools Marlow and his friend Hastings into thinking Hardcastle’s country house is an inn. Kate pretends to be a maid to draw Marlow out a little and confusion reigns throughout the night. 

She Stoops to Conquer is directed by Dr. Michael Hannah. Dr. Hannah also designs the costumes and division chair Danielle Curtis designs the lights and sets.

All performances are in the Hayes Auditorium, Broyhill Theatre.
