ReDiscovery Series Reading:

"The History of Cardenio"
by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher
an imaginative reconstruction by Gary Taylor
directed by Stephen Fried
April 23, 2007, at 7:30 p.m.

Free - Reservations required.

Don Ferdinando forces his friend Cardenio's beloved Lucinda into 
marriage, betraying both Cardenio and his own lover, Violante. 
Brokenhearted, Violante and Cardenio plot to be reunited with their true 
loves. Based on characters from "Don Quixote," "The History of Cardenio" 
returned to the London stage in 1727 as "Double Falsehood"-a 
contemporary adaptation of an earlier manuscript written by William 
Shakespeare and John Fletcher. Shakespeare scholar Gary Taylor 
reconstructs this 17th-century play that had been virtually lost to 
audiences for centuries.
