Synopsis

Don Quixote

Don Quixote $16.99

James Fenton from Miguel de Cervantes

Published by Faber and Faber

Large Mixed Cast
Don Quixote is widely regarded as one of the foundation stones of modern fiction

This stage adaptation marks the 400th anniversary of Cervantes' death ...

After a lifetime of reading books on chivalry, Don Quixote decides to embark on a quest of his own

Taking up a lance and sword, he sets out to become a wandering knight, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked

Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, he travels across Spain accompanied by his faithful and equally ill-suited squire

And each calamitous adventure widens the gap between reality and the romantic ideal of Quixote's books

It premiered at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, with the Royal Shakespeare Company in March 2016

This playtext contains song lyrics by James Fenton and music composed by Grant Olding
