Don Quixote tickets

After receiving acclaim from audiences and critics alike, Angus Jackson’s smash-hit production of Don Quixote transfers to the West End. Originally premiering in 2016 at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the hilarious comedy plays at London’s Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Adapted for the stage by poet and journalist James Fenton, the play is based on Miguel de Cervantes’ iconic, sadly whimsical novel The Ingenious Nobleman Don Quixote de la Mancha; a popular story in modern culture. Following the aging titular character, who has spent a lifetime reading books about medieval knights and their quests, Don Quixote believes he is one as well.

Inspired by the wandering knights in the stories, he dons a suit of armour, finds an ill-suited companion and embarks on a life of defending the helpless and defeating the wicked. Unfortunately, it becomes clear that he is beginning to lose his grip on reality, as inns become castles, prostitutes become ladies of the court and windmills are giants that must be fought!

David Threlfall stars as Don Quixote, opposite Rufus Hound as Sancho Panza, both reprising their roles from the original production. Threlfall is best-known for starring in Channel 4’s Shameless, as well as Black Sea, What Remains and Troy: Fall of a City, whilst Hound’s stage credits include the recent Present Laughter at Chichester Festival Theatre, Wind in the Willows and One Man Two Guvnors.

Additional casting includes Will Bliss, Raphael Bushay, Farrell Cox, John Cummins, Richard Dempsey, Ruth Everett, Gabriel Fleary, Richard Leeming, Nicholas Lumley, Natasha Magigi, Tom McCall, Joshua McCord, Bathsheba Piepe, Rosa Robson, Timothy Speyer and Eleanor Wyld.

Angus Jackson (Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Goodnight Mister Tom) directs the production, which features design by Robert Innes Hopkins, lighting design by Mark Henderson, sound design by Fergus O’Hare, movement by Lucy Cullingford and fight direction by Malcolm Ransom, with original compositions by Grant Olding.

The RSC production was first staged to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Cervantes’ death and received across the board. A hilarious, madcap, riotous adventure, his playful production plays a strictly limited season at the Garrick Theatre. Don Quixote runs at the London venue from 27 October 2018 to 2 February 2019, with a press night on 8 November 2018.
