All’s Well That Ends Well is one of Shakespeare’s problem plays. Helena loves Bertram, but he is far above her station. Bertram’s father has just died and he leaves to be in service to the King of France who is sick and dying. Helena, a physicians daughter, is determined to be in the presence of Bertram, and decides to pursue this by curing the king and in return asking for Bertram’s hand in marriage. She succeeds in curing the king, but not in winning Bertram’s heart. Bertram flees his marriage to run off to the wars. But Helena is not done pursuing Bertram. What will happen in this comedy of wits and manipulation, clowns, and kings? Come find out this July!
