Marian, or the True Tale of Robin Hood 
Friday – Saturday 7:30 PM, Saturday-Sunday 2 PM
Macklanburg Playhouse
An innovative perspective on a classic. A gender-bending, hilarious new take on the classic tale. Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise and leads a motley group of Merry Men (few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who, if not Robin, will stand for the vulnerable? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of trouble? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle.
