A Comedy by Mary Lynn Dobson | Directed and Designed by Zachary Gipson
A frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic.
This time around, the legendary legend, in his never-ending quest to aid the needy, encounters a lovely damsel-in-distress (oddly obsessed with skin conditions); an everscheming sheriff who would rather bowl a strike than hit a bull’s-eye; a gold-hoarding, badguy monarch wannabe; and a good-natured “Town’s Gal” who manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six, and you’ve got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest you won’t soon forget!
