★ Winner of The Stage Award for Acting Excellence ★

★ “Highly Commended” VAULT festival ★

Two feisty senoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through Spain. Accompanied only by a guitarist whose presence there makes no sense whatsoever, they will lead you to joy, pain, and ultimate wisdom. Eighty glorious minutes which conclude with the common sentiment: “These guys did not read the book”.

Little Soldier Productions presents an imaginative and provocative adventure of epic proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt and a handlebar moustache.


The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote De la Mancha has been performed more than 130 times in 5 different countries. It is Little Soldier’s internationally renowned show and premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, receiving The Stage Award for Acting Excellence.
