The curtain of the old traveling stage reveals a nobleman who is not satisfied with reality. Inspired by many knightly romances, he chooses his neighbor Sancho Pansa as his squire and sets out to make the world a better place as the self-proclaimed knight Don Quixote. They see castles in inns, herds of sheep become armies, and mills turn into giants. They fight from one outrageous adventure to the next, constantly failing yet never losing courage. Because Don Quixote wants to be a hero! But is it enough to pretend to be a hero in order to truly become one?
The actors of the traveling stage also have to deal with failure, they step in for each other, take on new roles and perspectives, and fight for their version of Don Quixote.
Does fantasy still have the power to change the world? Does theater have this power?
And if so, which stories should then be shown on the world stage?

On the occasion of 40 years of Chawwerusch Theater, Chawwerusch dedicates itself to these questions and takes a closer look at "Don Quixote," this champion of utopia. With a large ensemble, outdoors, and with music – funny, tragic, heartfelt.
