The Guardian (UK)
June 25th, 2023

“The show feels a little too twisty and messy at times but it is utterly winning too. The entire thing froths over with a great sense of fun and heaps of imagination. This is how to rewrite a legend: a must-see this summer.”

“For all the brief, bang-on allusions to unjust land ownership, punishing taxation and eco-unfriendly road-building - the show never quite hits the theatrical bull’s-eye.”

"The entire intent of this show was never made clear and felt like a particularly under-rehearsed pantomime in parts. ... 'Robin Hood' was a show whose riches were few and far between and overall was poorly executed."

The Arts Desk

“Sometimes the ambition proves too much, the concept, execution and delivery jarring, no harmony to be found between the disparate elements...I suspect most men (and women) will be anything but merry after a show that repeatedly takes aim - and misses.”
