Author: John Quinn (Page 2 of 13)
A hysterical, sprawling, action-packed drama that challenges and reinvents the myth. Includes a wise-cracking, superior swords person in Marian, and a Robin who only by chance finds himself a hero. But true to the legend, of course, all ends well: The Sheriff’s scheme to wed and bed young Ellen fizzles, King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded, the Sherwood Foresters are finally legitimized, and a justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land.
May 5-7 at 7pm and May 8 at 2pm
Tickets at the door: $5 seniors/students, $10 general public
2016 The Massachusetts High School Festival (Massachusetts Educational Drama Guild) includes 112 one-act plays produced by member high schools.
