She Stoops to Conquer runs at Backdoor Playhouse April 23-May 2Oliver Goldsmith’s play, She Stoops to Conquer or The Mistakes of a Night, has been chosen as the Spring 2009 production at the Backdoor Playhouse. The play, which dates back to 1773, is a “charming satire of the sentimental comedies of the day.” It features a young girl who pretends to be a servant in order to win the affection of a man who is too bashful to court ladies higher in society. She Stoops to Conquer or The Mistakes of a Night is said to have many “hilarious turns of plot before the play concludes happily.” The production will be showing April 23, 24, 25, 27, and 28 and May 1 and 2 at 8 p.m. There will also be a late showing on April 30, at 10 p.m., and a matinee showing at 2 p.m. on May 2. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens and non-TTU students and free for TTU students with Eagle Card identifications.
