Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise, and leads a motley group of Merry Men (very few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who will stand for the vulnerable if not Robin? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of troubles? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle. A play about selfishness and selflessness and love deferred and the fight. Always the fight.
A gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, hilarious new take on the classic tale, from the author of 2015’s Hearts Like Fists.
10 words or less: Smash the patriarchy in this genderbending reimagining of a classic.
