OU Alumni Jeremy Sony’s new play Robin Hood and The Secret of Sherwood will be presented at Curtain Players in Ohio, outdoors Thursday-Saturdays June 16-18 and 23-25 in the Alum Creek Park Amphitheatre, West Main Street, Westerville. It is in conjunction with the City of Westerville’s Park and Recreation Department.
Here is a synopsis of the play: Sword fights, secret identities, love, betrayal, and redemption: History and legend collide in this new tale of Robin Hood. When the Brothers Huntingdon lost their parents to the treachery of King Henry of the Plantagenets, their lives took very different paths. One became an outlaw. One became the sheriff. When their paths cross again in Sherwood Forest, they find a Queen fighting for freedom, the King who destroyed their family, and the truth about their connection to the legendary Robin Hood. Their feud puts the very future of England at stake, as one brother puts himself before his kin, while the other discovers that being an outlaw might just be in his blood.
Congrats Jeremy! See it if you’re in the area!!
