After 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.Company Royal Shakespeare Company.

T1064165327

An imaginative, provocative and hilarious adventure of immense proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt and a handlebar moustache. Inspired by the wanderings of the famous Don Quixote, two Spaniards and an Englishman re-enact the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age. Their mammoth task would be easier if any of the following were true: they'd read the book, had enough actors or heeded the warnings of Terry Gilliam. Running time: 1hr. Age recommendation 12+Company Little Soldier Productions.

Fuelled by his obsession with tales of adventure, he embarks to set the world to rights, meeting a cavalcade of characters who cheat, beat, feed and love him.

The Last Knight in La Mancha - T1447421075

Don Quixote is so obsessed with romantic tales of chivalry, that he decides to became a knight himself, not least to impress a local peasant girl whom he imagines to be the beautiful maiden, Dulcinea. He convinces his long suffering squire, Sancho Panza to join him on numerous adventures, often causing more harm than good in spite of noble intentions. This is the tale of a sane madman and a wise fool. It is a moving story of love and self-realisation, filled with famously unforgettable encounters that Don Quixote remembers from his sickbed. Commissioned to celebrate Don Quixote's 400th Anniversary.Producer Theatre Without Walls. Company Yeta Theatre Co..
