★★★★ TIME OUT
Hilariously dirty adaptation.Two feisty senoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through Spain, taking on one of the most accomplished works of fiction ever written; Don Quixote. Accompanied only by an otherworldly guitarist whose presence there makes no sense whatsoever, they will lead you to joy, pain and ultimate wisdom. A madcap rendition concluding with a common sentiment: “These guys did not read the book”.
About Little Soldier Productions: With a three-quarters Spanish, three-quarters female and a token English Bloke, Little Soldier sets of to re-enact one of the most influential works of world literature. Their mammoth task would be easier if any of the following were true: they’d read the book, had enough actors or heeded the warnings of Terry Gilliam. This critically acclaimed production continues to have the company’s trademarks: combination of languages, live music and physical comedy. In this occasion, they present a truly engaging and hilarious show that has been charming audiences across the UK and abroad.
