The Lady of Sherwood

The family saga of Robin Hood continues in this brand new musical adventure by award-winning playwrights Stephen and Teresa Gashler. Featuring epic music a la Celtic Woman, Blackmore’s Night, and River Dance, this is far from your typical Robin Hood play. Paradigms shift as trusted kings become tyrants, heroes become villains, and “stealing from the rich and giving to the poor” no longer seems ethical. When England falls to mobs and chaos, Aspen, the free-spirited and free-thinking daughter of Robin Hood, must do what it takes to stop a war.
