This classic comedy of manners tells of the clever schemes and comic ruses that unfold one night at a country house.

In its day, this eighteenth century masterpiece was considered so 'low' that it might never have reached the stage. When it was finally produced, it enjoyed immediate and lasting success, breaking the mould with its satirical swipe at polite society

All's well that ends well ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Helena loves the arrogant Bertram, and when she cures the King of France of his sickness, she claims Bertram as her reward. But her new husband, flying from Helena to join the wars, attaches two obstructive conditions to their marriage - conditions he is sure will never be met. All's Well That Ends Well grinds the romantic against the realistic at every turn and brilliantly reverses all the usual expectations of Shakespearean comedy. Some of Shakespeare's most inventive language gives life to not just his single-minded heroine and her churlish lover, but a fantastic cast of frauds, cynics, sentimentalists and buffoons. Featuring Olivier-award winning actress Janie Dee as the Countess of Roussillon, Sam Crane as Bertam and Ellie Piercy as Helena
