A Look to the Future

So as I look to the next month and a half of discussing All’s Well That Ends Well, I’m seeing some topics lining up…

  • gender roles and expectations
  • aging
  • death and dying (particularly of father-figures)
  • the “bed trick”
  • subjection and marriage
  • patriarchal power
  • miracles and fairy tales
  • letters and written notes

Don’t know how many of these I’ll hit (beyond my “usual suspects” of bawdiness, stage directions and acting clues in the dialogue and verse, and Professor Rodes’ midpoint theory).

If you have any other suggestions of concepts you’d like to see explored in this play, let me know in the comments below…
