ABOUT THE PLAY
Don Quijote & Sancho Panza: Homeless in Seattle is a relevant adaptation of the Golden Age classic that explores the challenges of maintaining a person’s dignity while living on the streets. This script has been developed by doing readings at several organizations that provide services for the homeless, where homeless people provided us with their feedback on how they felt they were being represented on stage. Last year, we presented a staged reading at ACT as part of Hansberry Project’s Multicultural Playwrights’ Festival, where we provided twenty tickets to two different homeless services organizations to bring their constituents to this prestigious downtown theatre to see this play.
Now, after two years of development, we are ready to present a full production at Rainier Valley Cultural Center in Columbia City.
