The Seattle Public Library will host a 30-minute preview of eSe Teatro's upcoming play "Don Quixote & Sancho Panza: Homeless in Seattle," followed by a "Dialogue on Dignity" discussion, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13 in the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium.

 

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $7.

 

The play is a comedic adaptation of Cervantes' classic 17th-century novel, "Don Quixote." It depicts the friendship of two homeless Latinos who meet in an emergency room in modern-day Seattle. Together they face the perils of chronic alcoholism and mental illness head-on as they navigate the winding streets, shelters and health care system.

 

"Don Quixote & Sancho Panza" is presented by eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage, written by Rose E. Cano and directed by David Quicksall. The play was developed over two years through a series of readings at local shelters for the homeless, day labor centers, tent cities and support groups.
