“Robin Hood” is a classic tale of a British outlaw in Sherwood Forest who takes from the rich and gives to the poor, and a unique stage play of a group of actors resorting to telling the story of “Robin Hood” begins performances at BYU-Idaho tonight and will play until July 9.
The play is described as a play within another play as six actors scramble together to tell the story of Robin Hood to the audience. The play isn’t a usual stage play either. Instead of having audience members sit in front of a stage, they sit in a circle around the actors and become part of the play themselves.
“It’s laced with wonderful humor and quick disguises and witty dialogue. It’s not just zoning out in front of a TV or phone, it’s seeing something live and being an active part of it,” said Trevor Hill, the director of the play in an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio.
The play features six actors who will perform thrilling fight scenes and impressive character switches throughout the show.
“We have four actors and two musicians … there is a lot of jumping back and forth,” Hill said.
How the actors pull it off is up to you to see.
