Robin Hood
ROBIN HOOD
BY LARRY BLAMIRE  
Directed By: Christina Sheehan
Stage Manager: Mel Ryan

"If you plant fear in people you only fuel their instinct for self-preservation and, believe you me, there is no disease more dangerous among the servile."

Following up our successful run of The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan and King Lear, Queens Shakespeare and What Dreams May Co are pleased to present Larry Blamires Robin Hood. Join us for a summer of shield maidens, sheriffs, princes and a prince among thievesOh and did we mention swords. Lots and lots of swords.

Director Christina Sheehans fantasy inspired design transports audiences to an England at war with itself, gallivanting through a Sherwood Forest that serves as the dual playground battlefield where Robin and his Merry Men defy tyranny.  This sprawling, action-packed retelling of the Robin Hood story gives us characters that challenge and reinvent the myth including a Maid Marian with a sword who can do her own saving, a female Little John who is as quick witted as she is quick with her quarter staff, and several other cross-gendered casting scenarios which elevate the stakes of both the conflict and the comedy in a script by Larry Blamire that walks the line between The Adventures of Robin Hood and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Together these characters will stand against the power of King John and the Sherriff of Nottingham.

Through this lens we will explore what it means to fight cruelty where you find it, that Even the smallest light shines in the darkness., and that those who can stand up, will stand up. Were not one, were many. When heroes stand togetherwork together, not a power in all of England can stop us.
