Don Quixote archiveAfter a lifetime of reading books on chivalry, Don Quixote decides to embark on a quest of his own and 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 with his faithful and equally ill-suited squire. With each calamitous adventure they experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote's books seems further away than ever. Angus Jackson returns to the RSC after his highly-acclaimed production of Oppenheimer, to direct the stage adaptation of Cervantes' comic novel, widely regarded as one of the foundation stones of modern fiction. The production marks the 400th anniversary of Cervantes' death in 1616, by coincidence the same date as William Shakespeare.
