Flux Theatre Ensemble presents this new gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, comic take on the classic tale. More…
Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise, and leads a motley group of Merry Men (few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who will stand for the vulnerable if not Robin? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of troubles? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle. A play about selfishness and selflessness, love deferred and the fight. Always the fight.

Don't see it if You're looking for a drama or deep character work/development.
See it if weather your a fan or Robin Hood or not, you will definately love this play. This play has great writing, acting, staging and is hilarious.
Don't see it if You are not willing to keep an open mind when it comes to sexuality and are gender bias when it comes to role playing.
See it if You are interested in an alternate take on a traditional story that is relevant to current hot topics. Great dialogue and surprisingly fun
Don't see it if You are not comfortable with alternative sexualities. Open minds are a must. Not a traditional love story; only makes it more relevant
