Here they are guided by their creator, Miguel de Cervantes, in person
In this "buddies on the road" saga, the intrepid Don Quixote and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, are spurred on by Cervantes to battle giants - or are they windmills?
Rescue princesses - or are they swineherds?
Attack armies - or are they sheep?
Their world, the vital, dangerous La Mancha region of 17th-century Spain, is peopled with fools and shysters, nobles and priests, merchants and actors
Idealistic Don Quixote and pragmatic Sancho Panza learn to deal with the unexpected and the inexplicable as they travel and quarrel through the arid plains of La Mancha
Their friendship deepens as their adventures grow more challenging and complex
This script brings the whole story to life with the excitement, the bawdy humor and the deeply moving humanity of the masterpiece intact
Act One, based on Cervantes' 1605 novel, can be performed as a complete play (one hour)
Act Two, based on Cervantes' 1615 sequel, follows the subsequent adventures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza as renowned literary celebrities and it includes the death of Don Quixote
Spanish phrases and words are used throughout the script and are always rendered into English, giving an added appeal to bi-lingual audiences
Unit set - runs about 2 hours
