A Fancyfull Historie of That Most Notable and Fameous Outlaw Robyn Hood

iUniverse, Apr 24, 2001 - Drama
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE MEETS ROBIN HOOD! At last the classic tale of Robin Hood gets the telling it deserves: in the high Shakespearean style of Elizabethan drama. Here is England's greatest legend as England's greatest poet might have imagined it. The critics were convinced at the play's Chicago premiere: Pursuing persuasive parallels, the author forges links between plucky Robin and rowdy Prince Hal, between rotund Friar Tuck and rascally Falstaff, between intrepid Rosalind and a resourceful Maid Marian (Chicago Tribune). Robyn Hood keeps you on your mental toes to follow the intricacies and delights of a Shakespearean script you've never heard before-an almost unimaginable experience for Bardophiles (Plays International). After 400 years, the play that was meant to be has finally arrived. It's Shakespeare's style and Robin Hood's story together at last!
