Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood 

When: Various times
Price: $15+

The times are dark. A greedy autocrat has taken power, instituting taxes that favor the wealthy while slowly starving the working class. Indeed, twelfth-century England was no paradise for the non-nobility, as Richard Lionheart waged a disastrous crusade abroad and his corrupt brother John milked the monarchy and his countrymen for all they were worth. Such times call for a hero, and legend still has it that one came forth: Robin of Loxley, friend to the powerless, partisan to the absent king, and sworn enemy of the usurper on the throne and his local henchman, the Sheriff of Nottingham. Playwright Ken Ludwig takes a lighter look at the fabled British champion in his swashbuckling 2017 comedy. Guest artist Joshua David Robinson (Three Sisters) plays the title character. Christine Mirzayan is Maid Marian. Ray Dooley and Jeffrey Blair Cornell are the heavies, Prince John and Sir Guy. Red Clay Rambler Jack Herrick contributes an original score. —Byron Woods
