She Stoops to Conquer

The National Theatre, Director Jamie Lloyd

One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

Hardcastle, a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his daughter with his old pal’s son with a view to marriage. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin, he’s mistaken by his prospective son in-law Marlow for an innkeeper, his daughter for the local barmaid. The good news is, while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he’s a charmer with those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle’s indignation intensifies, Miss Hardcastle’s appreciation for her misguided suitor soars. Misdemeanours multiply, love blossoms, mayhem ensues.

Cush plays Constance, whose loves and laughs with her friend Katherine the play charts.

Cush Jumbo dazzles

*****

Henry Hitchings Evening Standard

A parallel romance between their friends Hastings and Constance is also gorgeously played by John Heffernan and Cush Jumbo.

Mark Shenton The Stage

Gorgeously played by Cush Jumbo

Mark Shenton The Sunday Express

Exaggeration, falling just the right side of over-acting: Cush Jumbo as Constance Neville and David Fynn as Tony Lumpkin.
