"Shakespeare or not, 'Double Falsehood' is well played" Punch Shaw, Fort Worth Star Telegram, June 16th 2011

 

"Double Falsehood, the second of two offerings in the Stolen Shakespeare Guild's Stolen Shakespeare Festival, may or may not have been co-written by the Bard.

But while the material in this well-mounted production certainly has an Elizabethan feel, you won't confuse it with King Lear. This play, based on a story from Cervantes' Don Quixote, is believed to have started as a collaboration between Shakespeare and John Fletcher. But it has passed through other hands over the years and was probably altered. The result is a drama with a Shakespearean tone but with dialogue that is not nearly so opaque as that found in the real thing." Punch Shaw, Fort Worth Star Telegram, June 16th 2011

 

"This production features some fine performances, especially in the lead roles. Thomas Fletcher and Lauren Morgan, as the young lovers Julio and Leonora, are at the heart of the matter and they carry the load comfortably. Carter Frost handles the pivotal role of Roderick adroitly. Kirk Corley and Eddie Zertuche, as the fathers of the Leonora and Julio, also turn in good performances (especially in a powerful scene that requires them to play off each other)." Punch Shaw, Fort Worth Star Telegram, June 16th 2011

 

"Morgan not only maintains a zippy pace (the show runs less than two hours) but also adds some artful touches, such as using silent tableaux to convey some of the ugliest moments in this story of unrestrained passions.

Another area where this production excels is Lauren Morgan's costuming, which has an early 19th-century look." Punch Shaw, Fort Worth Star Telegram, June 16th 2011

 

"So you are not likely to think this play belongs on your shelf along side Hamlet and Twelfth Night. But it is an interesting and entertaining choice. Any debate about the authorship of this work is, ultimately, much ado about nothing." Punch Shaw, Fort Worth Star Telegram, June 16th 2011
