Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood


This is a new panto, being written as you read this, with lots of relevant jokes about vaccines, home schooling, and lockdowns. 


The villainous and greedy Sheriff of Nottingham is already guardian to the rich and beautiful Maid Marian, when he hears of the Babes, a brother and sister who have been orphaned and have plenty of cash. Even though Nottingham is in the grip of a plague, he sends his evil but incompetent henchmen / women (Vi and Russ) to bring them, by force if necessary, to Nottingham Castle.


Meanwhile, Robin Hood and his Merry Men are having a tough time in lockdown, everyone getting cross and frustrated, especially Scarlett (Will Scarlett or Won't She?) who has been wooed by Robin for ages but can't decide to marry him. There are also the Big and Little Johns, Much the Miller's daughter (who Scarlett will eventually marry), and Fryer Tuck, who's running a takeaway fish & chips business.


Tickets will be on sale soon...
