Derailed

Little Soldier are not a theatre company. They’re a band. They only have one song. And nobody really knows what the words mean. But they want to play it loud. They also want to change the world. The only problem is they’re not musicians. Mercè studied politics and used to be hopeful but now she is mostly angry. Patricia just turned forty and wants her son to have a mother who has made a difference. Dan wants the world to be better, but he is not the type to share his private stuff. Thomas… Well, in fact, Thomas is a real musician, but he lives in Glasgow so he can’t meet for band practice.
Welcome to the revolution.

It’s gonna get messy.
Little Soldier presents a preposterous theatrical attempt to change everything. An incomprehensible punk rock protest album. A joyous autobiographical journey through activism… and a mirror ball helmet.

The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha

THE STAGE AWARD WINNER

‘Straight-up, funniest most charming theatre company I’ve come across in an age’ Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods

Edinburgh Festival 2014: The shows you can’t live without. THE GUARDIAN

Inspired by Don Quixote’s wanderings, two feisty señoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through Spain taking on one of the most accomplished works of fiction ever written. Accompanied only by an otherworldly virtuoso 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”.

Little Soldier presents a hilariously inventive adventure of immense proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt and a handlebar moustache.

The show is produced in association with Jacksons Lane and supported by Arts Council England and the Spanish Embassy in the UK.

You and me

‘impeccably-timed physical theatre’ -The Stage

Winner of the Argus Angel Award at Brighton Fringe 2013, ‘You and Me’ is a funny yet touching story which explores old age with humour, imagination and tenderness.

Two elderly sisters live in a foreign land against the backdrop of a battered rug and a mountain of mysterious boxes. They share an existence of outrageous defamation, tender reminiscing and pure madness, careering between affection and annoyance. But is their behaviour just eccentricity or something more destructive?

You and Me is based on original script ‘Tu i jo’ by Roger Simeon. Adapted and directed by BBC performing arts fund winner Bryony Shanahan, the show opened at Rich Mix in 2012 and enjoyed a successful month run at the Blue Elephant Theatre. In 2013 ‘You and Me’ has toured the UK and was presented at PAM Festival (New York).

Pakita: stimulating, bitter and necessary

“Rodriguez’s conviction and the power of her despairing delivery makes it compelling” -The Scotsman

Pakita joins a “lonely hearts” group unfolding an unexpected confession. From broken hearted lover to psychiatric patient, Caballero paints a picture of love and addiction before unveiling an audacious final act in which life imitates art in the most tragic way.

In 2010, Greenwich Theatre co-produced Pakita: Stimulating, Bitter and Necessary, by award winning playwright Ernesto Caballero. This show- performed both in English and in Spanish- enjoyed very successful runs at the New End Theatre in Hampstead, Sala Triangulo (Madrid) Teatro Latea in New York and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

‘Rodriguez has a natural ability to bring her emotions to the surface and manages to create a wonderfully layered and enormously watchable character.’
-Edinburgh Guide

“Pakita: a charming, captivating one woman show. Powerful text, pulls in the audience with an intense performance.”

‘Patricia Rodriguez, a young Spanish actress who seems to revel in the performance and who exudes so much vulnerability, charm and sense of humour.’
-Ham and High
