WMS Award winning Waterford Musical Society are proud to present yet another piece of classic musical theatre with their 2017 production of "Man of La Mancha", May 2nd to 6th in Waterford’s Theatre Royal.

Based on Cervantes’ epic 17th-century novel Don Quixote, this is a remarkable, poignant, stirring musical. Set during the Spanish Inquisition, we encounter Miguel de Cervantes in prison, awaiting trial.

When his fellow prisoners try to take Cervantes’ belongings from him, including his prized manuscript, Cervantes proposes a trial in which he proves the merit of his manuscript through a re-enactment, enlisting his fellow prisoners as characters in his play.

Together, they tell the story of the aged Alonso Quijana who believes himself to be a knight, names himself Don Quixote, and pursues an obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream.

Against all odds, Quixote and his trusty squire Sancho Panza

SPLIT

If you have seen the laughfest that was Sally Fields trying to act out the multiple personalities of a character in the mini series called 'Sybil' then you might be moving towards the territory that is covered here in the film where James McAvoy plays a character who has 24 separate and distinct personalities all warehoused in the same body. You might think that you would have to be politically correct when it comes to a movie that deals with a mental illness but the film certainly doesn't so why should the audience treat the movie any differently? This is a suspense/thriller where one of a number of the characters in McAvoy's body gang up on the others and take over, then they go out and kidnap three young women, as you do. You only find out bit by bit
