Drama. By Moses Goldberg.
Cast: 16m., 4w. Here is a challenging and action-filled play about law and order in Medieval England with contemporary "nerve-endings." This version of the well-known tale of Robin Hood emphasizes the social problems which led to his career in Sherwood Forest. The heroic deeds are seen anew in Robin bedeviled with a dilemma: obey the law and see people suffer the worst evils of the feudal system or break the law and cause violence, anarchy and injury to people. There is strong action, dramatic clash and vigorous confrontation as Robin makes his choices in a solution that is imperfect, but aims to avoid future violence. The Outlaw Robin Hood is a modern play of ageless appeal, recommended for ages 9 and older. Unit set with five locales. Costumes of the 13th century. Approximate running time: 60 minutes.
