Illyria is a mysterious place full of romantics and eccentrics. At least that’s how it seems to Viola, who’s been cast adrift in this merry world. Out of necessity, she disguises herself as a boy but quickly becomes an object of desire to the woman her employer sent her to woo. Time eventually sorts it all out, but not before Viola and everyone around her are bewitched, bothered and bewildered as they traverse the often contradictory landscapes of their hearts. This clever and lovely tale returns to our stage under the direction of Joseph Hanreddy, who directed our recent production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM which earned BEST PLAY from Broadwayworld.com.
THE HEART OF ROBIN HOOD
“Swear to be faithful to the order of the oak, To steal what you can steal, To obey no law of God nor man, To be free, under no king’s orders, No lord’s edicts and no church’s summons, Only dancing to the music of your own soul and the forest beneath your feet.”
All is not well in Nottingham. A cruel prince is terrorizing the countryside, the poor are overwhelmed with taxes and debts, and Robin Hood has learned to steal from the rich—but hasn’t figured out the other part. To the rescue comes a sword-wielding, sharp-witted Maid Marion, who sets out to show Robin and his band of men that there can be honor among thieves. David Farr’s funny, adventurous tale will surprise you with a new spin on a story you think you know. We are thrilled to turn the beautiful Garden at Björklunden into Sherwood Forest this summer and bring this classic family tale to life!
