This chapter discusses the May 2009 performance of Gary Taylor’s adaptation of Double Falsehood as The History of Cardenio, directed by David Carnegie and Lori Leigh in Wellington, New Zealand. It is a critical review looking at how the production realized the requirements of the text, with primary focus on the performances of the actors playing the two central couples in the play, but also considering the staging, design, costuming, and audiences’ reception of the production.

Keywords:   Gary Taylor, History of Cardenio, review, directing, performance, thrust staging, Lords’ Room, reception
