Double Falsehood

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

In 2010 Methuen books controversially introduced this disputed drama of love, betrayal, rape and reconciliation into their complete works of Shakespeare. But were they right to do so? Did Shakespeare write enough of it to justify its inclusion or is it just an audacious 18th century fake?

Decide for yourself at the first professional production since 1792.

Double Falsehood is a fast moving tale of young love, treachery and reconciliation. The Duke's youngest son rapes a village girl and sets out to steal his friend's bride. The aftermath of these traumatic events drives the four into the wilderness and the Duke's eldest son must find a way of reconciling everyone and reuniting the missing young people with their squabbling parents.

Directed by Phil Willmott who is well-known locally for his annual summer open-air productions at The Scoop.
