You all know the story of Robin Hood, don't you? How he robbed from the rich and gave to the poor, lived in Sherwood Forest and loved Maid Marion, while at the same time tweaking the Sheriff of Nottingham's nose and bopping him very firmly on the bonce.

You all know that story, right?

Did you know there were other stories about Robin Hood that were not quite so well known? Our tale tells of the two wards of the Sheriff, Lucinda and Elizabeth, of how the Sheriff is stony broke and plots against them to get their money, and of how Robin Hood and his Merry Men thwart those evil plans and save those babes from a dismal and gloomy demise.

Don't you know that one? You'll have to come and see the show then...
