She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith
The National Theatre Live season continues with the smash-hit production She Stoops to Conquer, currently playing to packed houses in the National's Olivier Theatre. One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, the play is a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

In marked contrast to the rest of the NT audience, and also the NT staff, She Stoops to Conquer is NOT one of my favourite productions currently on at the NT; that is reserved for Travelling Light. As far as She Stoops is concerned, I enjoy the show but I can't get that excited about it.
However, the best thing about the show for me is John Heffernan. John played Peter in Emperor and Galilean and, along with the other three male leads in the production, will always have a special place in my heart as a result!
