Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Andrew Hilton
A young woman, using skills bequeathed to her by her father, saves the French King’s life and is rewarded with the right to choose her own husband. But what if the chosen one won’t play the game?
A romantic comedy, yet with echoes of the much darker Measure for Measure, All’s Well that Ends Well belongs to its women. To its central character, Helena, and to her guardian and mother of her object of desire, the extraordinary Countess of Rossillion.
Class, unrequited love and disingenuous passion all play their part against the backdrop of an Italian civil war, which Helena’s chosen one joins in order to escape her. But when he fights like a hero he encounters the sexual temptations that celebrity so often brings…
How can Helena win him to her? How can she get him into bed?
All’s Well That Ends Well will tour the UK with Hamlet in May and June, for the first time fulfilling a Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory ambition to tour its full ensemble season.
