“A Cheerfully anarchic show that takes apart Cervantes' novel – with a power saw – and sends a reminder that change begins with us ..Like Cervantes's comic novel, this is a show which is far deeper than it might first appear"
“a whirlwind of joyous disintegration that sees the novel emerge resplendent from its own destruction.”
"a brave and funny performance that recontextualises and reclaims the importance of Cervantes' book...
...Don Quijote is revived as a punk symbol"
BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
"This is no reduced-Shakespeare style show, it is both more intelligent and more silly than that."
"a savage denunciation of cynicism and a lionised defence of idealism."
“IT’S AN INTERROGATION OF AN IDEA, OF A SYMBOL WHICH HAS COME TO STAND FOR SOMETHING FAR BIGGER THAN ITSELF AND WHICH, IN THE PROCESS OF PULLING IT APART IN THIS SHOW, BECOMES EVEN BIGGER. IT’S JOYOUS AND ANGRY IN EQUAL MEASURE, AND DEMONSTRATES THE EXAMPLE SET BY CERVANTES’ HIDALGO TO BE ONE WORTH FOLLOWING."
“I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I FELT THIS GRATEFUL TO A PIECE OF THEATRE...A BLAST OF DARK LIGHT AND HOPEFUL HOPELESSNESS...MORE THAN ‘PERFORMANCE LECTURE’ THIS IS REALLY ‘PERFORMANCE LITERARY CRITICISM’ ”
