Win tickets to see the RSC's Don Quixote in the West End

Including an overnight stay

David Threlfall and Rufus Hound are appearing in an acclaimed new West End production of the classic comic tale of Don Quixote – and we have a pair of tickets to give away.

What's more, our winner will win a night's accommodation in the heart of London.

Threlfall plays the title character – an eccentric old man who, inspired by the stories he reads, heads off on a rumbustious quest to become a wandering knight accompanied by his faithful and equally ill-suited servant Sancho Panza, played by Hound.

Taking up a lance and sword, Don Quixote sets out on a hilarious journey across medieval Spain, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked. Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, with each calamitous adventure the two hapless heroes experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote's books seems further away than ever.

This Royal Shakespeare Company's production – which features 20 actors and a band of lives musicians – was described as  'joyous'  by The Guardian and 'magical' by the Daily Telegraph and is playing at the Garrick Theatre following a sell-out run at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Adapted for the stage by James Fenton and directed by Angus Jackson the show runs until February 2.

One lucky will receive a pair of Band A tickets to see the show plus an overnight stay for two including breakfast at the Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity, perfectly located in the centre of London's cultural quarter. The hotel's designers were inspired by Oscar Wilde with details intended to entice and amuse.
