?In 1611, a play was submitted to censor with no definitive author. Several characters were unnamed and there was no title. The plots within were adapted from episodes of Cervantes' Don Quixote, and in the 1990s, the palaeographer Charles Hamilton attested that this play was the lost Shakespeare, Cardenio. This is an indelible and disturbing play that deals with obsession, amorality, suspicion and, ultimately, revenge.'

Production details

Premiere of a new version of the play by William Shakespeare. In an unnamed state the popular ruler, Cardenio, is dethroned by the tyrannical Fernando for reasons ill-seeming of a leader - he lusts after Cardinio’s wife, Luscinda. What is the cost to the people when a leader pursues his personal dark desires without any check or balance? With powerful echoes of Measure for Measure, The Winters Tale, Romeo and Juliet, Othello and Hamlet, this fine play is brought to life in this new version edited by Luis del Aguila and Jonathan Busby.
