ABOUT THE SHOW

This world premiere play by a local playwright is a loose adaptation of the novel Don Quixote de la Mancha, set in contemporary La Center at a group home for senior citizens. An aging resident decides he is a knight of old and embarks on misadventures comic and heartfelt as he and those around him grapple with dementia, identity, and what truly defines us.
