ROBIN HOOD 2018
14 – 30 June
"A truly innovative performance in a fabulous location"
"More entertaining than the World Cup"
"a glorious, fast-paced romp"
Our rollicking family adventure for summer 2018 was written by GSC’s Associate Playwright Ant Stones (Grimms’ Fairy Tales, The Wind in the Willows).
Featuring all the classic characters – Little John, Marian, Scarlett, Friar Tuck – this new play also reached back into the original folk stories of everyone’s favourite outlaw, for an adventure not to be missed.
Following the overwhelming response from audiences in 2017, we returned to Racks Close (Guildford’s best-kept secret!), a former chalk quarry, now beautifully overgrown into an idyllic natural amphitheatre.
Our awesome cast were also joined by members of our Young Company as children of the Outlaw. Read their blog here
...and in the spirit of Robin Hood, we held foodbank collections at every performance.
