Don Quixote Theatre Show Information
A literary classic comes to the Garrick Theatre in 2018 as Don Quixote is set to run for a limited season from 27th October.
About Don Quixote
Following a sell-out run at Stratford-upon-Avon, Miguel de Cervantes’ classic tale comes to the West End stage for a strictly limited season at the Garrick Theatre. From 27th October 2018 to 2nd February 2019, Don Quixote stars David Threlfall in the title role with Rufus Hound as his hapless squire, Sancho Panza and is adapted for the stage by James Fenton and directed by Angus Jackson.
Taking up a lance and sword, Don Quixote sets out on a hilarious journey across medieval Spain, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked. Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, with each calamitous adventure the two hapless heroes experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote's books seems further away than ever.

History of Don Quixote
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is considered one of the most popular works of Western literature ever published. Marking 400 years since Cervantes death, the 2016 RSC production at Stratford played to a packed Swan Theatre and received rave reviews from the critics. The original volumes were published by Cervantes between 1605 and 1615, originally titled “The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha”. It was an instant success with the first English translation appearing around 1612 and several English works clearly inspired by the novel appeared soon after. Don Quixote has been adapted as an opera, a ballet and an orchestral suite as well as being produced for the big screen several times. Picasso and Dali produced artworks based on the story and two bronze sculptures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza stand in the Plaza de España in Madrid.
