Abstract:

"Imprisoned and awaiting trial by the Inquisition for his effrontery in taxing a monastery, writer and tax collector Cervantes sets out to entertain his fellow prisoners with a dramatization of his hero's misadventures. As Don Quixote, and attended by his faithful retainer Sancho Panza, he rides forth to right society's wrongs. Unfortunately, in his idealistic zeal he is severly battered by the windmills, which he mistakes for ogres, and seeks succor at a common inn, which he mistakes for a castle. Played for the fool by the muleteers, he strikes a sympathetic chord in Aldona, the kitchen maid, and immediately dubs her his fair lady, Dulcinea. Daring to share his impossible dream, Dulcinea is rewarded with gang rape by the muleteers."--Bay Times, April 6, 1995.
