Me and Robin Hood

One man channels his childhood obsession with the mythical outlaw, Robin Hood, by making a stand against our stress-filled, unequal, consumer-driven society. Shôn first met Robin Hood back in the autumn of 1975, as a seven-year-old-boy, living on the Isle of Anglesey. But what would it mean to be a modern day Robin Hood? How could you take the principles of robbing from the rich and giving to the poor and apply them to the complexities of our global economy? And what’s so great about Robin Hood anyway? The latest inventive piece of sonic storytelling magic from writer/performer Shôn Dale-Jones – Me & Robin Hood is a story about the growing gap between rich and poor, radicalism and the challenge of knowing that sometimes you have to do something wrong in order to do something right. It’s a comic story about how Shôn’s childhood hero re-enters his life when he needs him most. Me & Robin Hood began life as a one-man stage play, produced by Hoipolloi and the Royal Court. Shôn ….
