Subject: Re: All's Well That Ends Well
This is my first posting to the list. I hope it is in keeping with the
conversation. My University is kicking off the season with a production of
All's Well That Ends Well. I plan to audition for the part of the Countess of
Rousillon. I'm a playwright/actor. It is my feeling that the plot of this
play is one of Shakespeare weakest especially in the Diana/Helena switch (and
they thought they developed the scheming look alike on Dallas.) It seems to, I
don't know, contrived. What are your thoughts? It also bothers me the way the
title is said two or three times towards the end of the play.
Again, any thoughts? Anyone seem any interesting productions of this play?
