The Robin Hood Caper
Characters: 6 male, 4 female
Carmichael has again proved himself an inventive and amusing playwright. He has taken an old plot rob from the rich and give to the poor but not even Robin Hood would recognize the hilarious modern slant given to it. Four old people meet to report on their good works in the "Charities Anonymous Club" at the home of Flora Langley's nephew, a small town journalist in danger of losing his newspaper to the grafting Mayor. Flora and her three old friends are actually retired crooks who use their old modus operandi for charitable purposes. Through the plot there is woven an unusual love story, moments of satire, and show stopping situations of hilarity.
"The proof of a comedy is in the audience's laughter and this is packed with it."
"Where other playwrights strike for the heart, Carmichael strikes the funny one....horseplay unlimited with generous helpings of satire."
