ABOUT

"Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no fibs.” 

WE'RE BACK! We can't wait to welcome you back to open-air theatre, and at the venue where it all began for GSC 15 years ago.

This summer, in the popular Guildford Castle Gardens, we'll be introducing you to outrageous Mrs Hardcastle, her crusty husband, their industrious daughter Kate, and her bumpkin of a brother Tony Lumpkin... this is Oliver Goldsmith's sublime Georgian comedy of manners, one of the best-loved and most-performed of English comedies.

She Stoops to Conquer takes place during a single night, when Marlow, a debonair man-about-town, is led to believe that his future bride's rural family home (the Hardcastles, whom he has never met, by the way), is in fact a country inn. When confronted with the elegant Kate Hardcastle, Marlow's swagger melts away, and so to conquer his heart and keep up the pretence, the tenacious Kate poses as a barmaid.

Director TOM LITTLER (Love's Labour's Lost, All's Well That Ends Well, The Wind in the Willows) transports this production to the 1930s country house world of Jeeves and Wooster, complete with fearsome aunts, hapless young men, determined debutantes and hilarious misunderstandings.

"I have long believed that somewhere in heaven the perfect production will be running for all eternity." Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph, 2012

Casting will be announced in the spring.
