BALTIMORE (May 5, 2015)—Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s new Under-30 Company bursts onto the scene with a fresh take on one of the Bard’s oft-neglected plays, All’s Well That Ends Well. Clever, middle-class Helena loves the aristocratic Bertram. When her ingenious plan to snare him goes awry, she conceives a daring trick to win his love. Join us for this late-night presentation of one of Shakespeare’s dark comedies, as our young lovers struggle with desire, rejection, and growing up.
Performances are scheduled for 10pm on May 15, 16, 22, and 23 at the new Chesapeake Shakespeare Company Theater, 7 South Calvert Street at Redwood Street, in Downtown Baltimore. Tickets are $10 and only available in cash at the door.

“All’s Well That Ends Well shows what happens when a fairy tale crashes into reality,” says CSC company member and All’s Well director Lizzi Albert. “The things Helena and Bertram struggle with—love, sex, parents, friendship, identity, betrayal—are the questions that consume young people. I can’t think of a better way to launch the Under-30 company than with this surprisingly modern love story.”
“All’s Well that Ends Well is considered one of Shakespeare’s ‘problem plays,’” says dramaturg Catherine Ritter. “Containing elements of both comedy and tragedy, this play doesn’t fit neatly into a genre category. It’s dark yet funny, daring and at times a little unsettling; it rings true to the reality of life and the human condition.”
