Shakespeare, Cervantes, Middleton and Fletcher. The giants of 16th-century literature are all involved in the mystery surrounding Cardenio; a play 'lost' for centuries, which many believe to be the work of England's greatest dramatist. With his incredible passion for, and understanding of, the work of William Shakespeare, director and author Gregory Doran takes the reader on a unique journey; a fascinating search through the fog of literary history for a glint of dramatic gold, and a thrilling account of re-imagining and staging the most enigmatic of Shakespearean plays. A journey from 16th-century Spain to the libraries of Oxford, the rehearsal rooms of London and the Swan Theatre in Stratford as Gregory Doran re-imagines Shakespeare's 'lost play'.
