Win tickets to see the RSC's comedy Don Quixote in the West End

Date published: 31 Oct 18

Don QuixoteAfter a lifetime of reading books on chivalry, one eccentric old man heads off on a rumbustious quest to become a wandering knight accompanied by his faithful and equally ill-suited servant, ‘riotously performed by David Threlfall as Don Quixote and Rufus Hound as Sancho Panza’ (The Times).

Taking up a lance and sword, Don Quixote sets out on a hilarious journey across medieval Spain, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked. Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, with each calamitous adventure the two hapless heroes experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote’s books seems further away than ever.

Following its sell-out run at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of Cervantes’ death, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s ‘joyous’ (Guardian) production of this legendary comic novel is told by a company of 20 actors accompanied by a band of live musicians.

    How about this, One day in Aden I went Water Sking, Lets say 600 yards out in the bay the boat towing me slowed and stopped I of course followed suit and descened into the Water when the people in the boat shouted at me to swim towards them and don't look back, of course I looked back and saw the Fin of a Shark.

    How can you comment on Daring and make it enjoyable at the same time as they are opposites, my most daring travel was being posted to Aden in the sixties where they wanted to kill me,

    this story is more about the appearance of having been daring than anything else. I was travelling up the West coast of Scotland, heading for the Isle of Aaran, sometimes staying in a B&B, sometimes camping. One morning after a night in the tent I got up to find that my left arm looked a little swollen. Within an hour it was absolutely enormous - it looked as though I'd sustained some horrific sprain or break. I took myself to the nearest chemist who took a look and then gave me the strongest anti-histamines he could give me without prescription. It took three days for the swelling to go down completely. And the cause? A midge bite - an insect so small as to be virtually invisible!

    Another adventure, and a new one, had us setting off with our guide to go white water rafting near Arenal, Costa Rica. The excitement grew as we approached the river. By the end of the safety talk we were all terrified and ready to turn back but not being able to admit to being wimps we bravely took our places in the raft.
    Paddles ready and keenly listening to instructions (would we remember what they meant?), and we were off. The water swirled and we paddled this way and that, harder, softer, paddles up, paddles down, don't loose balance, calm water. We could breath.
    Time for a break on a sand bank in the water. While we enjoyed our water melon, feeling proud of ourselves, and eagerly waiting for the second leg, we spotted a croc watching us from the bank. No time to rest and we were off again, surviving to tell the tale.
