Double Falsehood on Stage
In our winter issue, contributor Al Cunniff wrote an article about the controversy surrounding the authorship of the "Shakespearean" play, Double Falsehood. It's fascinating how Shakespeare continues to shape our literary world almost four hundred years after his death. Earlier this week I was pleasantly surprised to see an ad for New York's Classic Stage Company's production of Double Falsehood. I had no idea it was on stage here in the U.S. (opened on March 12 and closes this Sunday, April 3). Following this Saturday's matinee, Brean Hammond, editor of the Arden Shakespeare, will participate in a moderated discussion about the play's history.
