In this spectacular rendition of the English legend, the notorious Robin Hood and his band of merry men steal from the rich, but refuse to share with the oppressed peasantry. As the wicked Prince John threatens all of England, it is down to Marion to boldly protect the poor and convert Robin Hood from outlaw to hero. First seen at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011, this new production is filled with high adventure, epic romance, amazing fight choreography, and an original score inspired by contemporary folk music.

Need to know

Recommended ages 10+ or grade 5+

For Parents and Teachers:

First seen at the  Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011, where it was very popular with families, our new production is fun, thrilling, and full of action. Although it ends happily, the play does contain some scary situations and stylized violence, including a beheading. The themes are akin to a Young Adult book classification (i.e. Harry Potter) and would be appropriate for middle school children and those with a sense of adventure and fun.
This production contains fog/haze and strobe lights.

Discussions

Partnership with Greater Boston Food Bank

The story of The Heart of Robin Hoodwhich inspires sharing with those in need, deeply resonates with the very real lack of food and other basic resources among many members of our own community.  As such, the A.R.T. is inviting audience members of the production as well as other local individuals to celebrate the spirit of the holidays and the legend of Robin Hood by donating non-perishable food and toiletries at a designated drop site in the Loeb Drama Center between December 11 and January 19.

ACCEPTED DONATIONS INCLUDE:

  • Dairy: Milk – dried, evaporated, and boxed (such as Parmalat)
  • Protein: Beef stew, nuts, peanut butter, beans, and peas (dried or canned), chili, tuna fish, chicken, salmon (canned)
  • Vegetables: Tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, vegetables (canned), tomato juice
  • Fruit: Raisins and other dried fruit, applesauce, any canned fruit in its own juice
  • Grains: Crackers, oatmeal, whole grain rice, all types of pasta, ready to eat low sugar/high fiber cereal (Cheerios, Raisin Bran, etc.)
  • We cannot accept donations of baby food or pet food.

In 2012, the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) distributed almost 41 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people in Eastern Massachusetts.  Within the Cambridge community alone, the Greater Boston Food Bank serves approximately 10,000 people per month, donating food to 11 food pantries, 8 soup kitchens and 3 homeless shelters.  On average, the GBFB provides 68% of the food supplies for Cambridge-based anti-hunger organizations.
