A literary detective believes he has evidence that links an
18th Century play, “Double Falsehood”, to a
lost work by Shakespeare.
The author of “Double Falsehood”, Lewis Theobald,
always maintained that his play was a re-working of the
Bard’s original, an idea many dismissed as a hoax. But now
Professor Brean Hammond from the University of Nottingham in the UK
believes he has found credible evidence that links back to
“Cardenio” – Shakespeare’s lost play based
on storylines from Don Quixote.
Theobald claimed to have three original texts. As we approach
the Bard’s birth date (April 23rd) can Professor
Hammond unearth another play to add to Shakespeare’s vast
canon of work?
