    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...

    "Folk Rock meets classical with a scientific edge".

    The Kindred Spirit Band sound is special and distinctive, driven by "haunting and bewitching" female vocals, guitar, two classically trained, virtuoso, lead instrument players (on violin and flute / sax), dynamic drums and bass guitar and laced with jigs, reels and duelling improvisations. The band features Elaine Samuels (guitar and vocals), Catherine Dimmock (flute, sax and vocals) , Martin Ash (electric violin), Mike Hislop (bass) and Alan Barwise (drums). We will be having a special support tonight too, with the young and talented Cathryn Gleeson.

    The band will be performing in the main space of All Hallows Church tonight, which will be a beautiful setting for the concert. All Hallows Church is a very special place to come into because it has a vibrant and welcoming community who are doing really wonderful work, bringing the local community together.

    The band will be donating £2 from every album sold to the church's main charity, SPEAR.
