Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, struggle to remember Britain’s best-known folktale. This summer, a hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a calamitous new production of Robin Hood. Prepare for a riotous summer adventure fit for all the family as The Fools battle to tell their own version of the legendary tale at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK. Expect the full Three Inch Fools treatment – an evening packed with wildly-inventive story-telling, fast-paced drama, a host of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!

THE PLAY

Beneath the Major Oak, this inept troupe of players gather to tell the story of Britain’s best-known folktale. The only problem is: no one can quite remember the story! As each actor battles to tell their own version of the legendary tale, our hapless hero Robin must pull out even more tricks to bring his band of merry misfits together. And when the preening Prince John teams up with the scheming Sheriff of Nottingham to steal his brother’s crown, the scene is set for an adventure filled with misfired arrows, mistaken identity and mismanaged robberies. Can Robin pull his gang together in time to save his country, and live up to his name?
