Theatre Royal Stratford East: Robin Hood
This Christmas audiences will be transformed to the land of StratEastHam by team at Theatre Royal Stratford East who are staging a new adaption of Robin Hood. The production combines the timeless story with a contemporary and fresh script and original music.
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. Who will save the day? Will it be brave and daring Robin Hood? Or will it be the feisty and fearless Maid Marian?
Under the direction of Theatre Royal Stratford East’s Artistic Director, Kerry Michael, this magical story is full a whole lot of laughter, energy and surprises along the way.
Theatre Royal Stratford East is proud to be supported by Galliard Homes who are sponsoring Robin Hood.
