Nancy Meckler's production of All's Well That Ends Well was set in an unspecified time with a set which had a largely abstract design.

The show was designed by Katrina Lindsay. The costumes reflected the qualities of the characters: the young hero, the grieving countess, the lovesick young woman.

Helena was played by Joanna Horton and Bertram by Alex Waldman.

Nancy Meckler said: 'The play is rarely produced so I had only seen it once. I am really enjoying discovering all its qualities, The shifts from comedy to drama to romance are very sudden so it is a real challenge for a director. ... The play is neither a comedy or a tragedy and people are unsure whether its ending is a happy one. I think that is part of the reason it is called a "problem play". But I am really enjoying finding unexpected and surprising clues about the characters which give lots of opportunity for visual storytelling. One of its great strengths is its characters. They are bold, complex, romantic, and funny.'
