Written by David Farr in 2011, The Heart of Robin Hood centers Maid Marion in its retelling of the classic Robin Hood story. The production questions the origins of the moral story, asking how Robin Hood came to his iconic practice of stealing from the rich to give to the poor. This production of The Heart of Robin Hood is directed by Geoff Packard, a U-M theater professor, and stars Stefania Gonzalez as Marion and Erik Dagoberg as Robin Hood. Packard has also invited local bluegrass band Westbound Situation to perform some of the folk music called for in Farr’s original score. I look forward to the play’s intricately choreographed fight scenes and its emphasis on realism in its portrayal of relationships, politics, and morality.
