Drama Department, Students to Perform Shakespeares Alls Well That Ends Well

A cast of 15 UD students will cut their teeth on one of William Shakespeare's so-called problem playsplays difficult to categorize as either tragedy or comedyduring the upcoming Drama Department mainstage production All's Well That Ends Well. Directed by Drama Department Chair Kyle Lemieux, All's Well That Ends Well will run from Wednesday, Nov. 6-Saturday, Nov. 16. in UDs Margaret Jonsson Theater.

Alls Well That Ends Well is the story of a young orphaned woman, Helen, who is hopelessly in love with the new Count of Rossillion, Bertram. Bertram has no interest in Helen, only in gaining honor through military service.

A dark and comic look at the lengths we all go to achieve our desired ends All's Well That Ends Well asks the question: how far are you willing to go to get what you want? said Lemieux.

The production features scenic and light design by Resident Scenic and Lighting Designer and Affiliate Assistant Professor Will Turbyne and costume design by Associate Professor Susan Cox. The audience is invited to a post-show discussion with the cast and creative team after each performance.

Special performances include Faculty and Staff Night on Friday, Nov. 8, and Alumni Night on Saturday, Nov. 9. Each evening begins with a social hour at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 8 p.m. There will be no performance on Monday, Nov. 11.

Admission is free for UD students, faculty and staff and for alumni on Alumni Night. Otherwise, tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for seniors (55+), alumni and students at other schools.
