About The Rascal Quixote:  In an age where madmen become masters and the lines between the true and the false are damn fat, a writer spins a tale of a man who lives in a world of books. He declares himself a knight roams the countryside terrorising people, but also amusing them and enlightening them. Two bumbling policeman follow on his trail. The writer despairs as the story of the rascal Quixote eats its tail. Will the knight never find love? Will he never deliver justice? More worryingly, will he miss his dinner? The play is inspired by Cervantes' novel, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha.

About Harami Theatre: Harami Theatre can loosely be described as a bunch of people who do some theatre, but can be more accurately described as a salty conglomerate. It was formed when a play called "Butter and Mashed Banana" needed a name for the people who were making it. Since then Harami Theatre has made some more plays.
