A New Shakespeare Play Discovered??

http://www.typicallyspanish.com/news/publish/article_10637.shtml

What's this what's this?  A play by Shakespeare about Don Quixote?  Lost since 1612?  Confirmed in its authenticity by Gregory Doran, Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company?  Very interesting!  Does anybody know more about what play they're talking about?  Is there a title? 

Wait....CARDENIO?  THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT CARDENIO, FOR GOD'S SAKE!  THEY FOUND CARDENIO?!?!?!

I think I need to sit down.

More info, courtesy Ann in the comments. Thanks Ann!

I did find a slightly more detailed article here.

Thanks Ian. As we later learned, the "new discovery" was really just an error in translation -- the RSC is putting on The Double Falshood, and there is no new academic discovery to report. Ah, well.
