'All's Well That Ends Well' for Shakespeare in the Park production
The Vermont Theatre Company presents William Shakespeare's "All's Well That Ends Well" for its 27th annual Shakespeare in the Park production on June 23, 24, 25, and 26 at 6 p.m. on the Rotary Stage in Brattleboro's Living Memorial Park. Admission is $6. Reservations are not necessary.
"All's Well that Ends Well" is the unconventionally beautiful, complicated, and comically backward fairy-tale of Helena de Narbon. A brilliant, beautiful, and passionate daughter of a renowned physicia, Helena suffers the curse of loving above her social station. Count Bertram of Roussillon, a young French nobleman and the object of Helena's affection, would rather abscond to foreign battlefields for a soldierly life than bore himself with marriage. With the help of her abundant wit and a little magic, Helena pursues her reluctant groom into Italy, where she hatches a plan to win his respect and affection.
Watch a young medieval woman win her prince—and the day, and enjoy a good laugh.
