The Changeling Theatre will be performing All's Well That Ends Well in the vineyard.
Written later in Shakespeare’s life around 1604/5, All’s Well That Ends Well is rarely performed and often referred to as one of Shakespeare’s ‘problem’ plays. So called because it’s a comedy with a tragic overtones.
Shakespeare’s All’s Well that Ends Well tells the tale of two lovers, Helena and Bertram. Brought up together as the son and ward of a countess, Helen has an unhealthy crush on Bert. He goes off, following his Dad’s death, to the French court to fight. Helena follows, cures the King of an apparently fatal disease along the way, and is rewarded by the King granting her any husband she wishes. Helena chooses Bert but he refuses. When the King forces them to marry, Bert runs away to war saying Helena will have to get a ring from his finger and pregnant with his child if she wants to see him again. Helen follows in hot pursuit and through no end of Shakespeare’s artful trickery she eventually wins her man. How does she do it? Come and see!
Bring your picnic blankets along to enjoy the play with the summer evening sun and vines in the backdrop. We will be setting up a bar where you can buy drinks to enjoy throughout the performance, with ice-creams in the interval.
