Synopsis for The Quest for Don Quixote:
Playwright Ben Eisenberg sits in a Starbucks on the eve of the first rehearsal of his stage adaptation of Don Quixote. There’s just one problem—he hasn’t written it. He hasn’t written anything in years, and his status as wunderkind playwright is quickly fading to has-been hack. His agent is apoplectic, the producer’s advance is long since spent and adapting a 1,000-page Renaissance adventure is beginning to feel a bit like tilting at windmills. But then—whether from a stroke of genius or a near-lethal dosage of caffeine and Xanax—Starbucks itself begins to transform, and the errant knight arises in this delightfully theatrical and hilarious retelling of Cervantes’ classic tale.
About Mark Brown:
Mark Brown is an award-winning writer. His play Around the World in 80 Days has been produced around the world, from Off-Broadway to Baridhara Dhaka, Bangladesh and has been translated into Turkish. Tom Jones, his adaptation of the ribald Henry Fielding novel, received its world premiere in 2014 and has been called, “Clever, silly and highly theatrical!” His musical China – The Whole Enchilada was named Outstanding Musical of the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival and has been called “funny, smart, surprisingly deep, and very enjoyable.” Mark’s play The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge has been called “a sequel worthy of Dickens’ approval,” and “a worthy new entry into the holiday canon.” His adaptation of The Little Prince set box office records at the Hippodrome Theatre and the Orlando Theatre Project. His play Poe – Deep Into That Darkness Peering hasn’t won a thing but is a darn good play and should be produced more often. He’s currently working with Paul Mirkovich, his collaborator on Enchilada, on a musical adaptation of the novel Tom Jones. Mark lives in Los Angeles and dreams of living in a chateau in France.
