About the production

 

3/4-1.....tZieetts feeT
Welcome to our production of "Man of La Mancha". This is the first time this classic and entertaining show has been presented in Peterborough. It tells the story of a simple country squire who, disillusioned by mans' murderous ways to man, decides to embark on a glorious quest ... to sally forth into the world, to right all wrongs ... to become a knight errant known as Don Quixote De La Mancha! Accompanied by his faithful friend, Sancho Panza, and inspired by his "lady" Dulcinea, he embarks on a serious of hilarious, sometimes disasterous adventures. The show presented our producer Clive Read with a new challenge, as none of the cast ever leave the stage, but portray the tale as a play within a play - the action being set initially in a 16th century Spanish prison - but blossoming forth into all sorts of places in the imagination of Don Quixote.
