A GOOSEBERRY FOOL:OLIVER GOLDSMITH STOOPS TO CONQUER
(26th January 2008--Skyarts)
A friend sent me this, along with the 5 part version DVD release SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER from 2008, for me to share here. All are his rips so I can only take credit for the sharing. Once this is seeded, I will upload the play itself.
Oliver Goldsmith, one of the funniest, most infuriating figures of 18th century literary London, changed the face of British comedy forever when his dazzling play of seduction and intrigue, She Stoops to Conquer, exploded onto the stage in 1773.
Actor/writer/presenter Simon Butteriss takes us on a riveting trawl through Goldsmith's life and works (both as presenter and as Goldsmith himself), and reveals how many of the hilariously unlikely situations in Goldsmith's comedies were drawn from actual events in his own extraordinary life.
Goldsmith was not only a startlingly modern comic writer, he was also a dangerously subversive journalist and, while exploring Goldsmith's attitude to class, Simon finds himself cast as a comedy servant in our exclusive HD production of She Stoops to Conquer, allowing us (and Goldsmith) to glimpse behind the cameras as we witness the filming of one of the most enduringly popular comedies of all time.
