First pictures and reviews for the play “She Stoops To Conquer” with the wonderful Catherine Steadman @CatSteadman and Jack Holden @jackholdenactor I liked much in “Oppenheimer”.
Gallery from Theatre Royal Bath official site:
bathchronicle.co.uk “Catherine Steadman as Kate Hardcastle is lovingly devious.“
swindonadvertiser.co.uk “Catherine Steadman also puts in a fine turn as Kate Hardcastle“.
bristolpost.co.uk “Kate Hardcastle – a sparkling portrayal by Catherine Steadman – pretends to be a barmaid to cure and catch him.“
listomaniabath.com “The play is less a vehicle for social comment than an opportunity for comedy, and all is resolved satisfactorily when Kate (well played by Catherine Steadman) reveals that she has deigned to stoop from her social postion to that of barmaid (calm, this was first produced in 1773) to conquer her man.“
Fingers crossed to the cast & creatives for tonight’s Press Night in Bath!
10 July, more reviews:
thetimes.co.uk The Times gives it 3 stars, but you need a subscription to read the article.
thepublicreviews.com “Catherine Steadman is outstanding as the vivacious and independent Kate, while Charlotte Brimble makes an engaging Constance. Hubert Burton and Jack Holden are a suitably arrogant-yet-lovable double act as Marlow and Hastings“.
wiltshiretimes.co.uk Review: She Stoops to Conquer, Theatre Royal Bath (with a nice gallery).
thestage.co.uk “It works up a head of steam by the madhouse second-half, though, as London rakes Marlow and Hastings, played in Jeeves and Wooster fashion by Hubert Burton and Jack Holden, […] and his daughter Kate, made delightfully feminine by Catherine Steadman, as the serving girl.”
whatsonstage.com What’s On Stage review.
telegraph.co.uk “Sure to go far too, Catherine Steadman switches likeably and effortlessly between cool, high-born Kate and her warm, West Country alter-ego. […] There’s spirited support from […] Jack Holden as the hoity-toity Hastings“.
