All’s Well That Ends Well

This late “problem” comedy is the story of Helen, the orphaned daughter of a famous doctor, who falls in love with the noble Count Rossillion. She must earn her marriage to him and then gain his loyalty to herself by a series of difficult and arduous tasks. Half fairy tale and half folk tale, this unconventional play has intrigued scholars and theatre artists for centuries. Is the Count worth the ordeals Helena must endure to secure her marriage to him? Why does she do it? Is she a resourceful, determined heroine or a ruthless schemer? We presented this lesser known masterpiece as a Gothic fairy tale.
