Victoria University of Wellington presents the Summer Shakespeare 2017 production of All's Well That Ends Well

The Summer Shakespeare Trust are thrilled to announce that renowned Wellington theatre artist Peter Hambleton will direct the 2017 Victoria University Summer Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well, in Civic Square.  

Shakespeare’s rarely performed comedy tells the story of a love that is so strong it causes a young woman to risk everything for the chance of happiness.

Romance, love, lust and true virtue are hilariously examined in a fiendishly clever plot with all the inventive wit we expect, seasoned with the warmth and wisdom of an older generation who watch anxiously from the sidelines.

Peter Hambleton is one of the country’s most accomplished actor/directors - specialising in Shakespeare.  He featured in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit  movie trilogy as grumpy, redheaded Dwarf Gloin, directed the award-winning Equivocation at Circa, and is a Shakespeare Globe Centre NZ's Shakespeare’s Globe Fellow.

All’s Well That Ends Well will be excitingly staged in a corner of Wellington’s magnificent Civic Square – with lots of speedy action and laughs using bikes, skateboards and a madcap variety of anything and everything on wheels.
