WHAT'S a girl to do when she marries the man she loves only to have him set her an impossible challenge and then march off to fight a foreign war?
You'll soon find out when Stanthorpe Little Theatre presents All's Well That Ends Well by William Shakespeare.
The show will be over three big nights, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 4-6.
Doors open at 6.30pm each nights, before the performance starts at 7pm each night at Bungawarra Wines, Ballandean.
The audience will be surprised by Helena, possibly Shakespeare's most resourceful heroine, who will go to any length to get her man.
Guests will also be surprised by Shakespeare in this rarely performed, but astonishingly bold play, because it asks difficult, unpleasant questions while offering no easy resolutions.
How many marriages are truly equal, happy and without serious compromise? Is it truly all well if it ends well?
The play's co-director Christopher Desgrand said the cast were all looking forward to giving the performance a modern twist.
"In Shakespeare's day, men played both male and female roles,” he said.
"In a turnabout we hope the Bard will appreciate, this is our first Shakespeare play with an all-female cast, and the ladies bring a distinctive interpretation to the lines.”
It's a play where you don't know what happens next, and where fate is not written in the stars, but in the hands of an ordinary girl with a plan.
Tickets are $50 for families, $20 for adults, $15 for concessions and $10 for juniors and can be purchased from Gracious Giving.
