Robin Hood (Grose)


Think you know the story of Robin Hood? Think again.

Marian’s drunk, Much the miller’s depressed, Little Joan and Mary Tuck are at loggerheads, the sheriff’s bitten off more than he can chew and young Woodnut wants bloody revenge on those who took her mother’s life.

There’s also a mysterious hooded figure who might just be a hero to the poor and a terror to the rich... but who are they?

With lashing of humour, heart, and a forest full of secrets, Carl Grose spins a thrilling new take on the classic tale. Expect the arrows to fly in a bold new direction as trickery and truth collide with wild results!

Carl Grose is the writer behind such plays as Grand Guignol, The Kneebone Cadillac and 49 Donkeys Hanged, as well as Kneehigh hits Hansel & Gretel, The Tin Drum and Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs). He also wrote the book and co-lyrics for the cult West End musical The Grinning Man.

“This is how to rewrite a legend. A must see.” – The Guardian
