The Legend of Robin Hood at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds
Pity the impoverished people of Nottingham – their scheming Sheriff is relentlessly raising his taxes. Most folks have had to quit the city and move out to Sherwood Forest, as Nottingham becomes the preserve of the uber-rich.
Yet fear not, for a hero has emerged. Robin of Loxley! Not only does he steal from the rich and give to the poor, but he also looks fantastic in tights. Thankfully, Robin is not alone. No-nonsense Maid Marion, loud-mouthed Little Joan and puny pauper, young Rob have joined the fight. It’s people power vs ‘the man’. Let’s just hope the little guy can save the day!
The Legend of Robin Hood at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds from 25 November to 14 January 2023. Tickets can be booked at https://theatreroyal.org/shows/the-legend-of-robin-hood/
