Helena, a commoner, is desperately in love with the arrogant noble, Bertram, who doesn't love her back. Yet this passionate young woman, "whose beauty did astonish the survey of richest eyes," goes to the ends of the earth to win him. In this seldom seen work of Shakespeare, the bard examines unrequited love, cultural gender roles, and the question of honor; finding in the end that "the web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together."

It investigates the attraction and terrors of American populism, using a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and really, really tight pants.
