The ambitious ward of the Countess Rousillion, Helena, defies great obstacles to marry her son, Bertram; but the young Count would rather run off to war with his braggart side-kick, Parolles, than be forced to marry beneath his high station. In this sophisticated yet bawdy comedy, Shakespeare pits merit against class, women against men, age against youth, and honesty against hypocrisy until… all ends well. Or does it?
