About Robin Hood: The Legend. Re-written.

Think you know the story of Robin Hood? Think again.

Prepare for a thrilling new take on the classic tale, set in a desperate, divided kingdom where only the truly cunning can outwit the sheriff’s terrifying wrath. Promising humour, heart and a forest full of secrets, expect the arrows to fly in a bold new direction as trickery and truth collide with fiery results.

Told with epic storytelling, stirring songs, and absolutely no green tights (well, maybe just a flash), in the ancient, wooded heart of Regent’s Park, Robin Hood is a riotous folk tale for our times.

From the writer behind Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs), Grand Guignol and the West End musical The Grinning Man.

More information about Robin Hood: The Legend. Re-written.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is ideal for Robin Hood in London. The sunset backdrop and wooden theatre setting will only add to the haunting atmosphere of a stand-off between two titan opponents. Get ready to march with Robin and his merry men during their heart-racing adventure.

Robin Hood: The Legend. Re-written is one of this summer’s highlights in the leafy London venue. The season includes Once On this Island, a reworked version of The Tempest, La Cage Aux Folles, and Dinosaur World Live.

What to Watch For:

  • The Grinning Man creator, Carl Grose, adapts Robin Hood in London. He worked with Cornwall-based theatre company, Kneehigh, for 15 years, on shows including Dead Dog in a Suitcase (And Other Love Songs,) as well as versions of Hansel and Gretel and Cymbeline.
  • Director Melly Still previously helmed Captain Corelli’s Mandolin at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
  • The Robin Hood legend dates back to the late 14th-century. The words “Robyn hod in scherewod stod” (Robin Hood in Sherwood stood) originate from Alfred Noyes’s “A Song of Sherwood” poem. “Rhymes of Robin Hood” also feature in William Langland’s poem, “Piers Plowman.”
  • Disney adapted Robin Hood in 1973, anthropomorphising the titular outlaw as a red fox. Robin’s merry men became a brown bear, a rooster, and a badger.
