High School Teacher
She Stoops to Conquer is both farcical and an example of a "comedy of manners." Farce is defined as "boisterous comedy involving ludicrous action and dialogue which is intended to excite laughter through exaggeration and extravagance rather than by a realistic imitation of life." A comedy of manners pokes fun at "the manners and conventions of aristocratic, sophisticated society."
