This Christmas audiences will be transformed to the land of StratEastHam by the Olivier Award nominated and critically acclaimed team at Theatre Royal Stratford East, with their new adaption of ROBIN HOOD. Combining the timeless story with a contemporary and fresh script and original music, this version is sure to impress audiences during its run at the highly renowned East London producing house. ROBIN HOOD is running from Saturday 5 December to Saturday 23 January, with press night on Wednesday 16 December.

Theatre Royal Stratford East delivers great pantomimes for audiences of all age's year upon year. Their speciality lies in producing a show that reflects the dynamism of its vibrant community and capturing new audiences through its innovative storytelling, making it arguably the most relevant, entertaining and ultimately the best pantomime in London.

This brand new script is written by groundbreaking duo Trish Cooke and Robert Hyman, and directed by Kerry Michael, ROBIN HOOD unites the team who created the critically acclaimed Dick Whittington in 2013, and who also were the first to get an Olivier Award nomination or pantomime for Cinderella in 2007. Set and Costume Design is by Harriet Barsby and Tony Award winner Jenny Tiramani (Best Costume Design 2014) who have created a chic new look to compliment the stage adaptation. The team are consistently delivering first-class pantomimes with their original music, clever designs and directions along with their integrated casting that represent the beautifully diverse and contemporary London we live in.

ROBIN HOOD, the prince of thieves and his band of merry men are on a mission this Christmas! As he robs from the rich and gives to the poor, he's on a quest to save good King Richard and the poor people of StratEastHam by trying to defeat evil Prince John. But who will save the day? Will it be brave and daring ROBIN HOOD? Or will it be the feisty and fearless Maid Marian?
