CANCELLED She Stoops to Conquer at Leaf & Ground : 7:30pm (open 6pm)

Professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as “one of the best companies touring open air theatre" are set to delight family audiences once again this summer in the stunning grounds of Leaf & Ground to bring you their production of classic period comedy She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith.
Last performed by Rain or Shine back in 2002 She Stoops to Conquer is a play that leaps out of its century with a freshness and vivacity which have kept audiences laughing for over 200 years.

This wonderful witty romp, Oliver Goldsmith's masterpiece, drives a coach and four through the manners and conventions of 18th Century England. Young Marlow is rich, handsome and single, but despite his infamous ability to charm a barmaid, he's hopelessly bashful in the presence of a society lady. When he mistakes his future father-in-law's house for an inn and his fiancée for a barmaid, we enter the pure comic territory of an eighteenth-century ‘Fawlty Towers’. The revival of this brilliantly funny comedy is scheduled for summer 2020, so pick up your petticoats, belt up your breeches, harness your horses and drive up for an evening of uproarious laughter.

As the name suggests, Rain or Shine specialise in performing outdoors, and have - and will continue performing - in all but the very worst of weathers!
