In this comedy, Helena takes her medical skills to the court of the ailing King of France. Succeeding where others have failed, she cures the monarch and exacts her payment: the hand of any man she chooses. That man is Bertram, the self-obsessed and haughty Count of Rosillion. Now the trick is to overcome the young Count's resistance -- by beating him at his own games. The parts of Helena and Bertram are played by Emily Woof and Samuel West.
