Don Quixote – Theatre of the Blind

Given the constraints involved in putting on a Fringe show, blindfolding the audience and performing to their other senses seems an eminently sensible idea. How else would you stage Cervantes’ classic on a budget? Here the audio-aural experience works pretty well. And it’s not just a gimmick – remember the book is about how a madman sees the world.

Don Quixote - Theatre of the Blind

  • 3 stars

Unstable conception in the adventures of a self-appointed knight. The audience is blindfolded throughout as we attempt to stage the unstageable. Official sell-out show 2007. 'A gossamer touch' - **** (Scotsman).
