WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"I promise you Sancho, that as soon as we show courage, others will too. They will comprehend they are nothing more than yapping lap dogs with ribbons in their hair and Winalot biscuits for snacks and they will transform themselves into roaring lions!" Don Quixote is reincarnated as Donald Quicksot in this adaptation of Cervantes' epic tale. The time is now and the place is England, but the circumstances and challenges are, in essence, the original ones. And if it's true that once created, a character has a life of his own, then what if Don Q from London has a notion of not only repeating his past follies, but also of being no more than a toy in a giant kid's playroom? Don Q takes a contemporary look at the classic tale of courage to live a dream. It is a story of infatuation with the unachievable, triggered by disillusionment.

This event takes place at Oxford Old Museum (at side of Town Hall), Blue Boar Street, Oxford OX1 1BX
