All's Well That Ends Well
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Scott Wentworth
MIRACLES ARE EASY. LOVE’S A LITTLE HARDER
Having worked a seemingly miraculous cure on the painfully aﬄicted King of France, Helena, an orphaned doctor’s daughter, claims as her reward the hand of Bertram, the young lord she adores. But he so despises her that she’d need another miracle to win his heart. Still, Helena’s no quitter, and she knows a trick or two to get what she wants.
