She Stoops to Conquer
09/28/2018 to 10/21/20187 South Calvert, Baltimore, MD 21202
Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Miss Hardcastle for a serving maid. In that bygone era before a lady could get a background check of her suitor through Google, Miss Hardcastle seizes her chance to go undercover to learn more about Marlow, the man her dad hopes she'll marry. Enjoy a bawdy, witty, comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups. First performed in 1773, She Stoops to Conquer broke new ground, steering British comedy away from the sentimental or genteel, and giving the audience a "low" or "laughing comedy" with sass, comic mayhem, and jokes that skewered society's pretensions. A smash hit at its debut, She Stoops to Conquer still delivers the laughs. "This is a comedy of its time, for all time," says The New York Times. PRICES: Adults: $35-$55; Seniors (ages 65 and over): $31-$46; Ages 25 and under: $17-$28. EVENT CONTACT PHONE: 410-244-8570. WEBSITE: https://www.chesapeakeshakespeare.com/

Join OPH Rescue for a book tour with one of our Fosters/Volunteers who is an author and wrote a book about her experience with rescue.

A portion of all book sales are donated to Operation Paws for Homes! Another Good Dog is a warm and entertaining memoir about what happens when you foster fifty dogs in less than two years and how the dogs save you as much as you save them. Filled with humanity and hope, Another Good Dog will take the reader on a journey of smiles, laughs, and tears― and lead us to wonder how many other good dogs are out there and what we can do to help.
