'Lost' Shakespeare play to return to the stage

A forgotten Shakespeare play is making a return to the stage for the first time in more than 200 years.

Double Falsehood will be showing at The Union Theatre, Southwark, between Tuesday January 18th and Saturday February 12th for those looking at theatre breaks in the capital.

The play's appearance is inspired by its inclusion in Arden's complete works of Shakespeare, which was published by Methuen books last year.

It was first shown in London's Theatre Royal in 1727, around 150 years after the Bard had written it, with a final known production taking place in Covent Garden in 1793.

"There's lots of action, cliff-hangers, romance, betrayal, friendship ... and revenge ... an action-packed story which everyone will enjoy," director Phil Wilmott told Sky News.

Actor Simon Callow added that while it is not a "masterpiece", the play is a "very good, well-crafted, strongly-written" one perfect for today.

After Double Falsehood finishes its run, The Union Theatre will show Irish Blood, English Heart by Darren Murphy.
