The play is directed by Gregory Doran , and the London transfer produced by Bill Kenwright & Thelma Holt.

Leading the cast of All's Well is RSC Honorary Associate Artist, Dame Judi Dench, who will play the Countess of Rossillion. She said "The Countess is one of the few Shakespearian women that I've never played and I'm thrilled to be working with Greg Doran and being part of a big company again."

Helena, a doctor's daughter and now ward of the Countess' court, saves the life of the King using one of her father's secret prescriptions. Her reward - to take any man to be her husband. She chooses Bertram, the Countess' son. Appalled at having to marry a commoner, he declares he will never be hers until she obtains the ring he wears and is pregnant with his child, all of which is seemingly impossible...

Looking for the best seats...
