Overview

“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.”

When his father dies, Bertram rejects his friends, abandons his mother, and flees his childhood home. But the orphaned Helena refuses to give up hope. Following in her father's footsteps, she becomes a doctor, saves a monarch's life, and crosses half of Europe in the passionate pursuit of her happiness.

One of Shakespeare's most intensely romantic and bittersweet plays is given a magical and intimate production, drenched in the music of memory.

Two pianos were played live by acclaimed cabaret performer, actor and Jermyn Street Theatre regular Stefan Bednarczyk (who also played Lafew) and Ceri-Lyn Cissone (who also played Diana), whose credits include Anne Elliot in Persuasion.

Tom Littler is Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
