Me And Robin Hood (Hoipolloi & Royal Court in association with Theatre Royal)

By | Published on Monday 7 August 2017

Shôn Dale-Jones becomes the radical figure that the modern age lacks in this thought-provoking performance in support of Street Child United. Weaving a cunning web of his own playful and, at times, emotionally raw stories with the well-known tale of Robin Hood, Dale-Jones proves to be a gifted storyteller with a palpably important story. The show blends fiction and reality to challenge the most dangerous fictional creation of all: money, and all the inequalities it brings with it. This is not just another pretty Fringe tale however: Robin Hood has arrived in Edinburgh, and he’s imploring us to get out of our comfy seats and rob the bank – who’s in?

Pleasance Dome, until 27 Aug.
