About

Robyn Hood: Outlaw Princess (also called Robyn Hood and her Women of Sherwood) is based loosely on the traditional tales of Robin Hood. It is essentially a fantasy, the setting of which is timeless and whose characters can be played by actors from any ethnic or cultural group. Consequently, there is no "correct" way to stage it. Costumes and sets can be based on traditional medieval designs or on contemporary trends. Thus, the Sheriff of Nottingham could be dressed in traditional costume complete with robes and chains of office, or as a fantasy character whose makeup and costume reflects the styles of today's rock stars.
