This latest production of the Anthony Harper Summer Theatre is full of fun. The young cast bring great energy as they portray a female Robin Hood and her circle of Merry Women in Burwood Forest. Lots of literary allusions, parodies of well-known songs (I shot the Sheriff), and topical references. It’s an excellent evening’s entertainment, and the setting amid the trees of Riccarton House is ideal. Be sure to dress warmly – the weather was cool when we were there last night.
“This story with a female Robin
had songs that kept our heads a-bobbin’.”
