Hedgepig Ensemble Theatre Presents Shakespeare's ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL
Hedgepig Ensemble Theatre tackles Shakespeare's 'problem play,' All's Well that Ends Well, in New York City in December 2018.
After successful runs of A Taste of Shakespeare and Mary Zimmerman's The Secret in the Wings, Hedgepig returns with a fiercely feminist take on Shakespeare's comedy, All's Well that Ends Well.
Director, Emily Lyon, says, "All's Well that Ends Well is a comedy with a question mark. The world we're living in has a lot of question marks right now, and I think we're really hoping for a comedy, so it feels like the right time and environment for this play...It's a story about [Helena] finding herself and finding her power. I think we need a play where [women] find their own strength and get to claim it."
"Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie." -All's Well that Ends Well
