'Lost' Shakespeare play performed for first time

The History of Cardenio, based on the book Don Quixote, is considered one of Shakespeare's lost plays. A Shakespeare editor and professor has spent the past twenty years studying fragments and adaptations of the play in an attempt to reconstruct it.

He finally staged a complete version of the play at the University of Indiana Purdue University - Indianapolis, in front of an audience of theatre fans and Shakespeare scholars.

The BBC travelled to Indianapolis to witness the performance and discuss the play's evolution with Taylor, the play's star, and experts in the field.
