Get ready to “Boo” the Sheriff, cheer the Merry outlaws and Revolt with Robin!
Firm favourites, Oddsocks Productions, return to Theatre Royal Winchester for two performances on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 February, with their inimitable trademark humour, live music and audience interaction in Andy Barrow’s exciting new telling of the legend of Robin Hood: Robin Hood and The Revolting Peasants.
The sinister Sheriff is on a mission to squeeze the purses of the peasants, avoid his responsibilities and make friends with despicable despots! With a cast of firm favourites and fresh friendly faces, audiences can join and revolt with Derby born and bred and regular Oddsocker Dominic Gee-Burch as the heroic and honourable Robin Hood! Joining Robin is a team made up of the caring crusader Marion and squirrel-saviour Little John, who are raring and ready to take on the gluttonous and guileful Sheriff!
Robin Hood and the Revolting Peasants tells the story of the heroic legend Robin who, along with Marion, forms a group of like-minded avengers to rise up against the Sheriff. A Sheriff who sets out to collect unreasonable taxes (whilst avoiding paying his own) from the people of Nottingham. It’s a tale of empowerment and teamwork verses greed, power and corruption, with a lot of fun along the way.
An Oddsocks performance guarantees laughter and mayhem as they give Robin Hood their quirky spin. Whether adult or child, there is something for everyone from furry forest friends for the children to idiotic innuendos for the adults!
Robin Hood and The Revolting Peasants will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Friday 8 February at 7pm and Saturday 9 February at 10.30am. To find out more or to book visit www.theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01962 840 440.
