Dieses Jahr habe ich mit Ina Habermann für die BUSC zum 25-jährigen Jubiläum William Shakespeares All’s Well That Ends Well oder Ende Gut, Alles Gut inszeniert. Helena liebt Bertram, den Prinzen Frankreichs, aber als mittelloses Waisenkind hat sie keine Chance ihn für sich zu gewinnen. Oder doch? Sie schmiedet einen Plan, aber wie weit gehst du für dein Happy End? Aufführungen in englischer Sprache am 8., 10., 12., 14., und 15. Juli 2017 in der Brotfabrik in Bonn.

Once Upon a Time

For its 25th anniversary, the Bonn University Shakespeare Company is proud to present two of Shakespeare’s fairy-tales: ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. These two plays are two sides of the same coin: Presented back to back as well as on separate evenings, they share actors, lines, and the same stage to show all that fairy-tales are: the glittering spectacle of song and dance on the one hand, and the lies we tell ourselves in the face of unbearable choices on the other. While A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM celebrates the happy ending we all want to believe in, ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL looks behind the rose-tinted glasses to go where it hurts.

How far would you go for your happy ending? – ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL

Helena loves Bertram. She is just a girl, he is the Prince of the realm. Her best friend Parolles warns her off. And yet, she is determined that nothing shall stand in her way: She will have her happily ever after. But what starts out as a fairy-tale plot might not be all that it seems, and there is a cost to every happy ending.
