About the Title

The title All's Well That Ends Well stems from a proverb. It means a positive result can justify or negate any actions or problems that may have preceded it. In this play the challenges Helen overcomes before she wins her heart's desire, and the questionable strategies she uses to achieve her goals, are all justified by the play's happy ending.
