Me & Robin Hood is Hoipolloi’s newest show about Artistic Director Shôn Dale-Jones’ longstanding relationship with his favourite fictional friend, the prince of thieves himself.
Shôn first met Robin Hood in the autumn of 1975, as a seven year-old boy and they have been good mates ever since. Robin’s been going crazy recently about the direction our world is heading. He can’t believe there hasn’t been a bigger reaction to all the madness since Brexit and Donald Trump moved into the White House. This show is his idea. He’s convinced we need to change the story of money and share the opportunity we’ve been given if we really want to do something about the growing gap between the rich and the poor.
After the show audience members can donate money for Street Child United World Cup 2018, a charity that uses the power of sport to change the way the world negatively sees and treats street-connected children, so they can be protected, respected and supported.
