★★★★ 'Director Lotte Wakeham handles her vivacious ensemble cast with vim, navigating the show's circuitous story with welcome wit and self-conscious bravura... Hugely enjoyable.' Time Out

'a reminder that Howard Goodall remains one of the most distinctive and undervalued composers in British musical theatre of the last 25 years.' The Guardian

A joyful musical adaptation of Oliver Goldsmith’s classic comedy She Stoops to Conquer, Howard Goodall and Charles Hart’s vibrant musical receives its professional première at Jermyn Street Theatre.

Tonight is All Fools’ Eve, when the world can be turned upside down by determined young lovers…

In the great hall at Nonesuch, young heiress Kate Hardcastle and her cousin Constance prepare to receive their suitors. But Kate’s formidable mother Mrs Hardcastle and the mischievous Tony Lumpkin have other ideas, leading to a brilliant musical comedy of mistaken identity and disguise.
