All's Well that Ends Well
by William Shakespeare
Helena, a doctor’s daughter, wants nothing more than to marry Bertram, the young Count of Rossillion. Bertram wants nothing more than to join the beautiful young noblemen in the King’s court in Paris, and then to find glory on the battlefield. Both of them get what they want … or do they? Parents have died; the King stands at death’s door. Young people make grievous mistakes; their elders look back at the mistakes they made in their youth, and then make a few more. Is love enough, when life leaves you scarred? It all ends well in Shakespeare’s troubling not-quite-comedy … or does it?
Performances on November 9, 10 and 11 at 8pm and a matinee on November 12 at 1pm.
