Edinburgh Preview: The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Macha
Fri 25 July
The Marlborough Theatre
Little Solider Productions a production inspired by Don Quixote’s wanderings. Two feisty senoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through medieval Spain taking on one of the most accomplished works of fiction ever written. Accompanied only by a flamenco guitarist whose presence there makes no sense whatsoever, they will lead you to joy, pain and ultimate wisdom. Sixty glorious minutes concluding with a common sentiment: “These guys did not read the book”.
Little Soldier presents an imaginative and provocative adventure of epic proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt and a handlebar moustache. The company is the Winner of Argus Angel Award for You & Me (2013) and The Stage has awarded the accolade of “Impeccably timed physical theatre”.
Produced in association with Jackson’s Lane and supported by public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Also supported by the Embassy of Spain (Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs), the Cervantes Institute, Hispania London & SESVERNES.
