Presented by GALA Hispanic Theatre
Cervantes: The Last Quixote
by Jordi Casanovas
Directed by José Luis Arellano Garcia
GALA Hispanic Theatre enters its fifth decade by commemorating 400 years after the death of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra with the world premiere of Cervantes: The Last Quixote.
In this new play of mystery and intrigue, Cervantes has died in the street. A drunk insists that the man who killed him is the renowned poet Lope de Vega. In Casanovas’ tale, the same man recounts the secrets Cervantes shared with him, revealing the most tempestuous period in the great writer’s life and the unbridled creativity of his final years.
