The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at Loyola University New Orleans ends the season with William Shakespeare's classic play, "All's Well That Ends Well," in Loyola's Marquette Theater on March 16, 17, 22, 23, 24 at 8 p.m. and March 18 at 2 p.m.

Directed by Artemis Preeshl, this production leads the audience on a journey to attain one's true desire. With constant twists and turns including love, rejection, healing, dirty tricks, reconciliation and union, the play telegraphs a spiritual pilgrimage in which the heroine dupes her family and follows her anti-hero husband in the opposite direction. 

As the play begins, we learn that the Countess Rousillon is happy that her ward, Helena, wishes to marry her son, Count Bertram. Although Bertram does his best to avoid the union, his plan is thwarted when Helena saves the life of the King of France, who then decrees that she can choose any man in his court as a husband. She selects Bertram for her husband, who promptly refuses to marry her because of her low social rank. The King orders him to marry Helena, which he does before immediately sending her back to the Countess before the marriage can be consummated. Bertram then goes off to war rather than live as a husband. Undaunted, plucky Helena uses her feminine wiles to get her way.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for students, children and seniors. For tickets and information, visit montage.loyno.edu or call 504-865-2074. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage, which is accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
