May 10th 2013 at Roborough Studios as part of T3 festival
Co-directed by Kolbrun, Noelle Fair and Fergus Rattigan, Cardenio, Shakespeare's supposed lost play, was staged as part of T3 at University of Exeter in April 2013 at Roborough Studios.
"Love, for the most part, is not love, but lust."
A friend betrayed and a woman seduced.
A group of lovers are torn apart by betrayal and seduction. Based around a brief episode in Cervantes’ Don Quixote, it’s Zorro meets Shakespeare in this later romance.
This play has all of the elements of a Shakespeare play that one loves – comedy, tragedy, love, swashbuckling swords, overbearing fathers, cross dressing women, mistaken identities, sex, and even a coffin trick!
"So from old Shakespeare's honored dust, this day
Springs up and buds a new reviving play"
