The Heart of Robin Hood at the OSF in Ashland

                     A new play by David Farr

 This is a delightful retelling of the classic story of Robin Hood; it is full of slapstick humor, swashbuckling and bawdy jokes.   Robin Hood is played by an athletic John Tufts.

But all is not well in Nottingham, the dastardly evil Prince John has come to double the taxes on the poor and marry a reluctant Marion.

To get away from Prince John the determined and impetuous Marion played by Kate Hurster accompanied by her trusty jester protector Pierre, decides to dress as a boy and call herself Martin  of Sherwood and join the bandit Robin Hood and his merry men.

What follows is a funny and fast paced romp of good against evil, and of course in all fairy tales good eventually wins.

Get thee to the OSF’s box office to capture your tickets.
