Director Tony Britten's adaptation of this evergreen comedy, shot entirely on location in and around the Jacobean Wiveton Hall in North Norfolk, stays faithful to Oliver Goldsmith's original text, at the same time making the play relevant for a modern television audience. The cast includes a host of theatre and television stars; Polly Hemingway, Ian Redford, Miles Jupp, Susannah Fielding, Holly Gilbert, Mark Dexter, Joseph Thompson and Roy Marsden. Made for Sky Arts and presented in five episodes, the two disc set also contains a video diary by actor/comedian Miles Jupp, who plays a definitive Tony Lumpkin in the series, actor's workshops with writer/director Tony Britten and the cast, as well as a one hour documentary exploring Goldsmith's life and work, written and presented by Simon Butteriss entitled 'A Gooseberry Fool - Oliver Goldsmith Stoops to Conquer'. Capriol Films 'She Stoops to Conquer' premiered on Sky Arts to great critical and audience acclaim, both for its attention to textural detail and the beauty and quality of its visual style. 'She Stoops to Conquer' has recently had a very successful three month season at the National Theatre that has raised the profile of this great period comedy.
