This is a play about Robin Hood. Or is it? He certainly doesn’t seem to think so. In fact, the playwright, Harper Callow attends the opening performance to discover that this isn’t what she wrote at all. She wrote a drama, not a comedy! Inspired to change the world in what she is sure are profound political ways, she wrote a searing satire using, or rather altering, the classic story of Robin Hood. But if this play will work, then why do the characters seem to have a life of their own? Why does Maid Marian have a beard? Why is Little John actually little? And the Sheriff of Nottingham is actually a pretty good dude. He’s just a little misunderstood. When Harper discovers that the play is literally cursed and that she can use the script on her phone to change each scene as it happens, she regrets that she left auto-correct on. Everybody takes a crack at the script, including Hollywood screenwriters and even Robin Hood himself (he’s disgusted by this whole experience!). It’s Monty Python meets Luigi Pirandello (look him up) in this zany, accidental comedy that will make you wonder: what is The Legend of Robin Hood? And why are there so many goats?
