Royal Shakespeare Company’s Don Quixote, which premiered at the RSC’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in spring 2016, will transfer to the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End this fall. David Threlfall (Shameles) and Rufus Hound (One Man, Two Guvnors) will reprise their roles as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza in James Fenton’s adaptation of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes.
Don Quixote will begin performances in London October 27 and will continue through February 2, 2019. RSC Associate Director Angus Jackson will again return to direct the production.
The play with music tells the famous, farcical story of a self-fashioned traveling knight accompanied by his faithful squire on a journey across Spain.
Don Quixote is designed by Robert Innes Hopkins, with music composed by Grant Olding, lighting by Mark Henderson, and sound by Fergus O’Hare. The fight director is Malcolm Ranson. Movement is by Lucy Cullingford.
