All's Well That Ends Well - William Shakespeare

For a Shakespeare play, "All's well that ends well" is pretty short and light on its feet. It resembles "Measure for Measure" but its plot is simpler, its characters less elaborate. Helena, a beautiful orphan uses her dead father's medicinal skills to cure the king of France. Overjoyed, the king permits her to marry above her class to the very unwilling Bertram. Panicking, Bertram joins the army and, while on campaign, tries to get into a certain Diana's panties. But Helena has followed him there and sleeps with him instead, unbeknownst to him. Embarrassment and hilarity ensue. A decent comedy.
