ABOUT

Whilst King Richard is away on crusade, Prince John rules in his name and raises taxes. In Nottingham, it falls to the Sheriff to ensure collection. As news spreads that more and more families are being evicted and imprisoned for non-payment, word reaches a small band of outlaws hiding in Sherwood Forest that the Sheriff’s work may not be all that it seems.

Will the outlaws discover the real intentions behind the Sheriff’s plan? Can Robin be the hero everyone needs him to be? Will Lady Marian be forced to marry to the Sheriff? And will Little John ever lose an arm wrestling contest?

Find out (and more!) in our rollicking family adventure 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 reaches back into the original folk stories of everyone’s favourite outlaw, for a family adventure not to be missed.

Following the overwhelming response from audiences last summer, we’re very excited to be returning to Racks Close (Guildford’s best-kept secret!) right in the heart of the town. Racks Close is a former chalk quarry, now beautifully overgrown into an idyllic natural amphitheatre.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RACKS CLOSE AND ROBIN HOOD

SEATING: As usual seating will be provided and unreserved. There will be a promenade element to the show and therefore audiences will not be able to access the main seating area until the performance has started. The venue will be open for picnics from 6.15pm (1.15pm matinees). The Bar and Box Office will be open 45 mins before the start time for you to collect tickets and to purchase refreshments.

ACCESS: Racks Close does not contain any steps/stairs, however being a former chalk quarry there are some steep grassy slopes. Therefore we would recommend that you visit the venue beforehand to check whether it is completely accessible for your particular needs. See a 360 degree view of the performance areas (opens in Google Maps)
