Playwright Ben Eisenberg sits in a Starbucks on the eve of the first rehearsal of his stage adaption 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 dose 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.
