A comedy classic will be performed outdoors at Delapre Abbey.

AlterEgo Theatre Company perform Oliver Goldsmith’s classic comedy ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ at Delapre Abbey Gardens today, tomorrow and Saturday.

The play tells the playfully convoluted story of well-bred and witty squire’s daughter Kate, who poses as a barmaid in the hope of charming her suitor Charles Marlow – a man terrified of talking to ‘ladies of esteem’, but perfectly prepared to play the cad with ‘ladies of another sort’. As the tale begins to twist and turn, the conniving cast of comical characters who inhabit the estate learn some lessons about the true nature of love.

A cast of six talented actors bring to life Oliver Goldsmith’s ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ – a play that has delighted audiences for centuries.

Audiences are asked to bring something to sit on and a picnic.

AlterEgo Theatre Company is a professional company based at The Portfolio Innovation Centre within the grounds of The University of Northampton.

The show starts at 7.45pm each night. Tickets cost £10 (£7.50 concessions).
