Described by the Washington Post's Nelson Pressley as “imaginative,” Jon Klein’s fresh take on the classic swashbuckling tale envisions Robin Hood as a teenager growing into his legendary abilities. When the sheriff of Nottingham’s campaign of persecution again the poor culminates in the false imprisonment of Robin’s father, the young scoundrel has to don the feathered cap and constrictive leggings of a hero. Unexpectedly aided by the sheriff’s scrappy daughter, Marian, and her pet falcon, Diana, Robin and his gang of cheery chums battle against the sheriff’s injustice. The whole cast swordfights, swings, climbs, plays, and battles within the labyrinth of Sherwood Forest, characterized as a “big playground” by the Post. “A sleek network of ramps, bridges and catwalks,” Pressley writes, “makes the environment ripe for chasing and fighting.”
Round House Theatre
When it was founded in 1970, the theatre company Street ’70 didn’t have a home, instead serving as a nomadic outreach program for schools and community spaces. It would be seven years before they’d find their own space in the Round House Theatre, which would eventually become the company’s moniker. Since those early days, the ensemble has produced more than 200 performances per year out of their home theater in Bethesda and a black box theater in Silver Springs. Round House Theatre also spreads the drama bug through classes, workshops, and not washing their hands after handling freshly penned manuscripts.
