Jenny Fitts as Aldonza

And the world will be better for this –

That one man, scorned and covered with scars

Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,

To reach the unreachable stars.


Staged in the Fort Lewis College Gallery Theatre


“The work is at once intimate and grand. . .   Grated skylights create a harsh prison atmosphere.   But Cervantes’ stories are illuminated by a variety of theatre devices: warm yellow spotlights, shadow puppets, strobes and a stunning blacklight sequence on a chess board.   Credit designer Charles Ford for beautifully visualizing the dramatic conflict between reality and illusion.   Credit Wood-Patterson for creating a universe in a tiny theatre.” – Judith Reynolds, The Durango Herald
