The ASC will present a staged reading of William Shakespeare’s lost play The History of Cardenio on Sunday, October 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Blackfriars. This special staged reading will be presented to the public free of charge.
Gary Taylor, noted scholar of English Renaissance drama, has re-created the version of Cardenio that will be presented at the Blackfriars. Through painstaking archival research and detailed linguistic analysis, Taylor has aimed to get as close to the original text as possible.
“We are pleased that Gary Taylor, the scholar who revolutionized the way we edit Shakespeare's plays, has reconstructed Shakespeare's lost play about Don Quixote," said Ralph Alan Cohen, director of mission of the American Shakespeare Center.
