ART John Shin­nors THE­ATRE She Stoops to Con­quer It may have started with a headache and a half and led to a de­moral­is­ing re­port about its struc­ture, but the Abbey’s pro­gramme for 2014 hasn’t been that bad, if slim­mer. It con­cludes with Oliver Gold­smith’s 18th-cen­tury com­edy of mar­riage mar­kets, class di­vi­sions and chi­canery, in which an up­per-class young woman im­per­son­ates a maid to woo a so­cially anx­ious gen­tle­man, and man­ners al­ter ac­cord­ing to the cir­cum­stances. Con­all Mor­ri­son di­rects a cast of re­li­ables (Marty Rea, Mar­ion O’Dwyer, David Pearse and Rory Nolan) and new­com­ers (Caro­line Mo­ra­han, Lisa Fox and Manus Hal­li­gan).
