About this show

Two prisoners in solitary confinement during Argentina's 1970s dictatorship are permitted to meet for one hour a week. To escape their harsh reality they tell each other the story of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Forced to remain seated throughout their encounter, they allow their minds to soar free by constantly reinventing Cervantes's hero, the knight errant who mistakes windmills for giants and prison for paradise.

Performed in Spanish with English surtitles. Through the use of simple props and quick-fire dialogue, Ecuador's leading theatre company exemplify the power of theatre to transport spectators into the realm of the imagination even as they remain bound to their seats. Age guidance: 16+

Part of CASA Latin American Theatre Festival
