Love pursuit and "problem play" christen a new venue for summer Shakespeare
All's Well That Ends Well tracks the romantic entanglements of Helena and Bertram, who cross Europe and a raging war in pursuit of happiness. Helena is convinced their best and only prospects are with each other. Bertram has other desires. But when Helena saves the king's life and takes Bertram's hand in marriage as her reward, their misadventures begin.
The cast features MSC veterans including Madeleine O'Keefe (Helena), Matt Reines (Bertram), Sarah Z. Johnson (Countess), and Ben Seidensticker (First Lord Dumaine), with first-time MSC performers including Donavon Armbruster (Lafeu), Riz Moe (Second Lord Dumaine), Meaghan Heires (Mariana), and Audrey Peek (Widow). The production is directed by Kendra C. Thompson.
This production was originally planned for Summer 2020, but rescheduled due to pandemic response.
All's Well That Ends Well will be performed Fridays through Sundays, July 23 through August 1. Friday performances begin at 6:30 PM, with weekend performances at 4 PM. Audience is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for best comfort in the beautiful natural performance space.
