Synopsis

This adaptation is a celebrated play that restored "laughing comedy" to the English stage and put Goldsmith in the great tradition of Chaucer and Shakespeare. It is an excellent classical piece for high-school or college actors. Kate "stoops" to pretending that she is a country servant and so wins her city lover. The fun of this good-humored comedy lies in the contrast of country and city manners, farcical intrigues and mistaken identities. It is as true today as when Dr. Samuel Johnson wrote of this play in 1773, "I know no comedy that has so much exhilarated an audience, that has answered so much the great end of comedy, making an audience laugh."
