The fences fall away as playwright Miguel de Cervantes transforms into the legendary hero Don Quixote in order to save his life’s work by lifting and humanizing his fellow detainees through the art of storytelling. This bold reimagining of Don Quixote’s quest — a glorious affirmation of the resilience of the human spirit — dares everyone to dream “The Impossible Dream” and search for the good in each one of us.
