DON QUIXOTE - MAN OF CLACKMANNANSHIRE
Sat 24 Sep - Sat 15 Oct
In this riotous reimagining of the classic story with a live flamenco guitar score, one 87-year old man decides to cut through the noise and be the good old-fashioned hero the world needs right now. It’s time to put on the armour, saddle up the mobility scooter and go forth on a journey (N.B. NOT an emotional one).
Accompanied by his verbally incontinent nephew Sandy, Don sets out on a freewheeling picaresque adventure through the pedestrianised town centres, traffic islands, Wetherspoons and wind farms of contemporary Scotland, before being dragged home to face his greatest nemesis: a social care needs assessment.
A funny, poignant, unruly tale of the basic human need to be seen and heard.
‘UNTIL DEATH IT IS ALL LIFE’
Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
