Do you trust your best friend?

A woman seduced and a friend betrayed; desire, deceit and disguise in the heat and dust of Andalucia.

Join us on a journey to 16th century Spain as RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran re-imagines Shakespeare's 'lost play' Cardenio as part of the RSC 50th Birthday Season in the Swan Theatre.

Cardenio is the result of a masterful piece of literary archaeology by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran. The play Double Falsehood was an adaptation of a lost play by Shakespeare, based on the story of Cardenio in Cervantes' Don Quixote. Such a play, by Shakespeare and John Fletcher, was first performed in 1612. Using this and other sources, Gregory has been able to re-imagine the story and it now receives its first performances in Stratford-upon-Avon.

In 1986, the Swan Theatre opened with Shakespeare and Fletcher's The Two Noble Kinsmen. Now 25 years later, we once again present a play on which these two writers collaborated.
