Robin Hood the Musical (Banks)

Greg Banks, playwright
Thomas Johnson, composer


53 pgs. 4 actors

Run Time: 90 minutes

Audience Recommendation: 6+


Four modern-day vagrants sit around a fire lit in an old trash can telling the story of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men in their fight to right the wrongs in the city of Nottingham. The story evolves into a gritty, grungy, fun version of the folk myth, with a quiver full of laughs thrown in, and the Ska-inspired score zips along with the action-packed narrative of justice.


“A constant delight” –The Guardian, UK

“Johnson’s thumping Ska-inspired music adds huge energy and volume to the musical. Four stars” – Reviewshub

“Greg Banks has an international reputation as a writer and director for young audiences, and his irreverent rendering of the tale of England’s favorite outlaw is mischievous fun.” –The Stage
