The notorious Robin Hood and his band of outlaws steal from the rich, creating a fearsome reputation amongst those who dare to travel through the mighty forest of Sherwood. But they do not share their spoils with the poor and are unloved by the people, who must also pay unfair taxes to the evil Prince John as he plots to steal his brother's crown. In this time of chaos and fear, it is down to Marion to boldly protect the poor and convince Robin that he must listen to his heart if they are to save the country.
The Heart of Robin Hood, David Farr's spirited new version of the great English legend, was premiered by the RSC at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in November 2011.
