REVIEW: If you're after some family friendly fun, then a riotous trip through Sherwood Forest could be in order.
Outfit Theatre Company's latest offering Robin Hood takes a light-hearted look at the man who robs from the rich to give to the poor and his band of Merry Men.
After taking an extended vacation, Robin returns to the forest to discover that the villagers are all struggling due to the Prince's heavy taxes and his would-be girlfriend Marian is about to be married off to the very same bad Prince.
With the help of his Merry Men, Robin sets out to put things right and defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John.
This play is full of fun and had people of all ages having a laugh. There's plenty of action, play fighting and rough and tumble fight scenes. Throw in a cleverly done fight prep montage, a bit of singing and some crowd participation and you've got an hour's worth of entertaining fun.
The entire cast performed with great enthusiasm, with both Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham shining through as the play's two stars.
The play is running at TAPAC until the 14th of December and is recommended for children aged six and up.
