The History of Cardenio
Cardenio loves Lucinda. When he tells his friend Fernando about her, Fernando loves Lucinda too. But Fernando is already as good as married to Violenta, a farmer’s daughter. So, to marry Lucinda, Fernando must be doubly false and betray the two people who are dearest to him. One will come close to death, another will go mad. Quesada, the old schoolmaster, has read too many stories of chivalry and determines to become a wandering knight. With his houseboy, Sancho, as his squire, he takes to the road to kill dragons and save damsels. There will be confrontations and absolutions but will everyone come out happy? Will everyone come out sane?
Richmond Shakespeare Society and Cutpurse present the British premiere of the most authentic vision of the lost play. One of the world’s leading Shakespeare scholars, Gary Taylor, collaborates posthumously with Shakespeare andv Fletcher to re-create their adaptation of Don Quixote in a script that’s passionate, romantic and immensely funny. And for once you won’t know how it ends...

New Annual Exhibition
Working for a Living in the old Borough of Twickenham is the theme for the 2017 Annual Exhibition featuring numerous images and artefacts from the earliest recorded times through to the modern day.
As well as an extremely rare trade token dating from 1669, other items attach well-known local firms such as Pouparts and Job’s Dairy.
How Church Street in Twickenham has developed between 1920 and 1950, and how Heath Road in Twickenham looked in the 1930s, comprise a new ‘supplementary’ exhibition on the first floor.
