THE QUEST FOR DON QUIXOTE
July 6-9 & July 13-16
Playwright Ben Eisenberg sits in a coffee shop on the eve of the first rehearsal of
his stage adaptation of Don Quixote. There’s just one problem—he hasn’t written it.
He hasn’t written anything in years, and his status as wunderkind playwright is quickly
fading to has-been hack. But then—whether from a stroke of genius or a near-lethal
dose of caffeine and Xanax—the coffee shop itself begins to transform, and the errant
knight arises in this delightfully theatrical and hilarious retelling of Cervantes’
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
