This summer the critically-acclaimed theatre company are touring outdoor venues around England and Wales with this brand new show.
“We’ve been looking forward to adapting the tales of Robin Hood in our own anarchic style,” says writer and co-artistic director Mark Hayward. “In a world where there is currently an increasing gap between the rich and the poor, Robin is as relevant as ever. We’ll always need someone to stand up for the little guy.”
The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons began life twenty years ago busking plays for donations in parks and on the streets, where they developed an attention-grabbing, interactive and playful performance style.
Even covid couldn’t stop this dynamic company who managed to tour socially-distanced outdoor shows in 2020 and 2021 and were among the first companies to be back in theatres when they reopened.
“It’s important for us to be there for our audiences who have been so supportive of us over the years,” says Hayward. “And in the current cost of living crisis we are committed to keeping our ticket prices as low as we can to keep theatre accessible to as many people as possible.”
