The Heart of Robin Hood is written by David Farr and directed by Gisli Örn Gardarsson with music by the folk band Poor Old Shine. In this spectacular rendition of the English legend, the notorious Robin Hood and his band of merry men steal from the rich, but refuse to share with the oppressed peasantry. As the wicked Prince John threatens all of England, it is down to Marion to boldly protect the poor and convert Robin Hood from outlaw to hero. First seen at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011, this new production is filled with high adventure, epic romance, amazing fight choreography, and original music.
Performances run from December 11 through January 19, 2014 at the Loeb Drama Center. The Loeb Drama Center, located at 64 Brattle Street, Harvard Square, Cambridge, is fully accessible.
