The feisty but lowly Helena falls in love with Bertram, a haughty count. To gain his hand she is set a string of impossible tasks. Even if accomplished, they can hardly guarantee his love. He refuses to bed her and yet says he'll only be hers if she bears his child; and he lusts after another. Nevertheless, our heroine, whether wisely or no, refuses to give him up. Set against a background of sexism, snobbery and a battle between the generations, Shakespeare's "All's Well That Ends Well" turns fairytale logic on its head.
