All’s Well That Ends Well is a play by William Shakespeare. Unable to neatly classify the play as either a tragedy or a comedy, critics have labeled it one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays.”
When the clever and appealing Helena cures the ailing king of France of an illness, she asks for the hand of Bertram—a proper young Englishman—in return. Her efforts to win Bertram’s love are rendered with wit and verve by a distinguished cast, including Claire Bloom, John Stride, Dame Flora Robson, Eric Portman, and Jack MacGowan. This performance brings to life this surprisingly modern play.
