In a nutshell, She Stoops to Conquer is a comedy built around arranged marriage, practical jokes, and mistaken identity.

The themes explored in the play are intertwined with these plot elements. The play continually makes points about the gap between expectation and reality, appearance and reality, self-presentation and identity, and so on.
