|In a production that pays homage to Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death, the UCT Drama Department is proud to present All’s Well That Ends Well, a story about a girl hopelessly in love with a young man who longs for freedom.
Geoffrey Hyland directs senior students in a beguiling fairytale of love and war. Neither comedy nor tragedy, this fable unpacks themes of love, sex, friendship, identity and betrayal. Helena’s daring trick to snare the aristocratic Bertram goes awry in a dark and funny tale that remains one of Shakespeare’s lesser-performed and undervalued classics.
This story about the obsessions that consume young people remains relevant to our contemporary experience, and features some of Shakespeare’s strongest female characters.
The UCT Drama Department pays homage to Shakespeare’s legacy. Follow the updates on the UCT Drama Facebook page and on Twitter under #WILLpower, #Shakebaby and #Shakespeare400.
