Double falsehood, or, The distressed lovers by William Shakespeare( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A play performed at the Theatre Royal in London in 1727 which the producer, Lewis Theobald, claimed to have adapted from a Shakespeare play. The plot is a version of the story of Cardenio found in Cervantes' Don Quixote as translated by Thomas Shelton and published in 1612. Documentary records list a play by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher performed in 1613, probably entitled The History of Cardenio. Is this the missing play or a literary fraud?
