Shakespeares Cardenio

Shakespeare's Cardenio

A woman seduced and a friend betrayed; desire, deceit and disguise abound in Shakespeare's "lost play."

Records show that in the winter of 1612 a play by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher, called Cardenna, was performed at the Court of James I. Just over a century later, the "lost" manuscript of the play was purportedly handed down to London theatre entrepreneur Lewis Theobald, who then adapted it into a play entitled Double Falsehood. While the original manuscript has since been lost once more, 21st century scholars and analysts of Double Falsehood have agreed that it contains many passages and scenes that are written by Shakespeare and Fletcher.

In 2010 Gregory Doran, current Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, combined Double Falsehood with his own extensive knowledge of Shakespeare literature and production into a new version of this "lost play" by William Shakespeare, restoring its original title, Cardenio. Doran's version of the play, which is based upon an episode in the novel Don Quixote, draws upon a team of writers including Cervantes, Shakespeare, Fletcher, and Theobald. The result was one of the biggest critical and popular hits of the 2011 RSC season, a passionate love story involving attempted murder, rape, and betrayals of love and friendship that takes the audience on an exciting journey to 16th century Spain.
