VIU Theatre Department produces Cervantes play

A play within a play – that’s the idea behind the Vancouver Island University Theatre’s latest play, Man of La Mancha, a comic tragedy about humankind’s struggle to improve itself and the world in which it lives.

The play is based on the The Adventures of Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes.

The original production of Man of La Mancha made its Broadway debut in 1965 and ran for over 2,000 performances and captured five Tony awards.

Man of La Mancha runs until Saturday (March 15) at the Malaspina Theatre. Tickets are $12; $10 /students and seniors, and can be reserved by calling the box office at 250-740-6100.
