The irrepressible Mappa Mundi are back!     

The irrepressible Mappa Mundi are back! Hot on the heels of huge success with The Importance of Being Earnest, Moll Flanders and Canterbury Tales, Mappa Mundi now invite you to a sumptuous society romp with Oliver Goldsmith’s classic 18th Century farce She Stoops to Conquer.

With an outrageous mix of secret elopements and nocturnal confusions, this satirical poke at polite society paints a hilarious portrait of life and love in the town and country with mistaken identities, acts of blatant greed, selfishness and plain stupidity, making it perfect fodder for Mappa Mundi’s sardonic style. Guest directed by Peter Doran of The Torch Theatre, Milford Haven.

She Stoops to Conquer visits Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Wednesday 27th May - expect larger than life characters, big laughs and even bigger hairpieces…

This time round the cast line up includes comic genius Kieran Self (dentist from BBC’s My Family, policeman in High Hopes) and Richard Nichols (regular of Welsh Rugby Scrum IV) as well as some familiar Mappa Mundi faces.

You can even get a taste of the behind the scenes action by visiting to see an hilarious trailer specially made to accompany the tour, or visit Mappa Mundi’s website to see what all the fuss is about!

Tickets are £9 with £8 concessions and can be booked in advance by ringing the Box Office on 01495 227206 or book online at
