ROBIN HOOD

by Jonathan Edgington

 

 

Robin Hood is a two act comedy-drama with a running time of just under two hours which successfully premiered in Winchester in 2016. It’s narrative is driven by three ancient, irascible witches and the plot centres around their desire to obtain the ingredients for a spell which will make them all young again.

Expect the unexpected and lots of laughs in this swashbuckling new version of the much-loved tale!    Twelfth century England. Weary from The Crusades, Robin of Loxley returns to Nottingham intending to marry his childhood sweetheart and claim his family inheritance. Instead he finds a much changed world packed with romance, mystery, intrigue and dastardly deeds in which his archery and sword fighting skills and those of his new comrades, the Merry Men, are regularly put to the test…

This new comedy/drama cleverly combines the traditional elements of the legend with brand new material and characters in an exciting, fun-filled adventure brought to you by the team responsible for the hugely successful Three Musketeers in 2014.
