All's Well That Ends Well (SWP)

All's Well That Ends Well (SWP)

Synopsis

Helena has lost and buried her father. Now an orphan – and an outsider – she pines for the love of Bertram, the son of her adopted family. He too is reeling from the death of his father. Will grief unite or divide them?
 
When Bertram leaves to become the King’s ward, Helena risks her life to win his love, but only succeeds in driving him away. What follows is the story of one woman on a mission: a new kind of heroine who is prepared to stop at nothing to get what she wants. Set in a decaying world where kings are dying and wars are brewing, this is a knotty tale of young rebellion and boundless determination.
 
Background
After her ‘splendid’ (The Guardian) and ‘astonishingly powerful’ (Time Out) production of The Taming of the Shrew in 2016, Caroline Byrne brings this dark, twisted and dangerous interpretation of All’s Well That Ends Well to the candlelit intimacy of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
