    Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 2:00 pm
    From Thursday, April 27, 2006 to Saturday, April 29, 2006 - 8:00 pm
    Sunday, April 30, 2006 - 2:00 pm

    Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure as playwright, poet and tax collector, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the inquisition for an offence against the Church. There he is dragged before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners, who plan to confiscate his few possessions—including the uncompleted manuscript of a novel, Don Quixote.

    Cervantes, seeking to save the manuscript, proposes his defence in the form of a play. The "court" agrees and thus begins one man’s attempt to defend the virtues of fantasy, romance and idealism in a jaded and cynical world.

    "Everyone owes it to themselves to see this masterwork of musical theatre more than once."

    Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure as playwright, poet and tax collector, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the inquisition for an offence against the Church. There he is dragged before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners, who plan to confiscate his few possessions—including the uncompleted manuscript of a novel, Don Quixote.

    Cervantes, seeking to save the manuscript, proposes his defence in the form of a play. The "court" agrees and thus begins one man’s attempt to defend the virtues of fantasy, romance and idealism in a jaded and cynical world.

    "Everyone owes it to themselves to see this masterwork of musical theatre more than once."

    Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure as playwright, poet and tax collector, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the inquisition for an offence against the Church. There he is dragged before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners, who plan to confiscate his few possessions—including the uncompleted manuscript of a novel, Don Quixote.

    Cervantes, seeking to save the manuscript, proposes his defence in the form of a play. The "court" agrees and thus begins one man’s attempt to defend the virtues of fantasy, romance and idealism in a jaded and cynical world.

    "Everyone owes it to themselves to see this masterwork of musical theatre more than once."

    Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure as playwright, poet and tax collector, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the inquisition for an offence against the Church. There he is dragged before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners, who plan to confiscate his few possessions—including the uncompleted manuscript of a novel, Don Quixote.

    Cervantes, seeking to save the manuscript, proposes his defence in the form of a play. The "court" agrees and thus begins one man’s attempt to defend the virtues of fantasy, romance and idealism in a jaded and cynical world.

    "Everyone owes it to themselves to see this masterwork of musical theatre more than once."
