Keith Dewhurst
Don Quixote

From the novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Keith Dewhurst’s version of Don Quixote is an epic play in 23 scenes, which seeks to convey for the theatre the variety, humour and tragic power of the most remarkable novel ever written. First performed at the Olivier Theatre of the Royal National Theatre, London, starring Paul Scofield and Tony Haygarth. (Cast 17+m, 6+f, 1b)

“The episodic grandeur of Cervantes has been gloriously rendered by Keith Dewhurst into a splendid ensemble showcase with Paul Scofield cast as the fantastic nostalgist of knight errantry. The occasion is fit to set beside such different Olivier triumphs as Galileo, The Oresteia and Guys and Dolls.”
Michael Coveney, Financial Times
