The Memories Season
ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Littler
Set and costume design by Neil Irish with Anett Black
A co-production with Guildford Shakespeare Company
“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.
