Three years ago, when John Maclay, Joe Foust and I first began discussions about a potential Robin Hood, a central question was – how do we adapt the tale in a way that puts young people at the center of the legendary adventures? We quickly realized young people would have been attracted to the cause – desiring to be a part of the revolution, wanting to fight to make things right in the kingdom – wanting to be merry men. John and Joe took that premise and ran with it, creating something quite wonderful that speaks to days of yore, but also reflects issues that still plague us today.
ROBIN HOOD, by Joe Foust and John Maclay opens Friday, February 17 and runs through March 12, 2017 at the Marcus Center's Todd Wehr Theater.
