Hudson Warehouse presents a pay-what-you-can, outdoor production of this 18th century English comedy, about an upperclass woman who poses as a maid to win her true love's heart.

When Kate realizes her suitor, the dashing Marlow, is a nervous wreck around upperclass women, but very easy and free with working class women, she realizes she needs to "stoop to conquer" by posing as a maid to win him over. Can she make him love her for who she really is? Hilarious misadventures and mayhem ensue before matters are neatly wrapped up at the end. This comedy of manners, which ridicules the manners of the upper class, was first performed in 1773.

Stage Buddy

"While delightful and funny, this free production is a little home-made, and more broadly comic than satirical...I don’t think that 'She Stoops' will satisfy the craving of someone who wants to see the stylized setting, tone, and costumes of this classic period piece but...the Hudson Warehouse has assembled excellent comic actors in a production that is earnestly meant to delight its audience -- in that, they are successful."

Dated, Entertaining, Fun, Quaint, Un-even

See it if you're looking for a light evening. This is a silly fun show. No great thrills or laughs but it's clever enough.

Don't see it if you want a polished production. Everyone's accent was different. The old style language was hard to understand at times. Yet it's still fun.
