About the playAfter 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.Expect a labyrinthine world of rogues, merchants, shepherds, galley-slaves and windmills to unfold, as Don Quixote and Sancho embark on rampant and absurd quests in a brilliantly energised reinvention of the farcical epic.Important dates
