Hugh Hughes presents Shôn Dale-Jones: Me & Robin Hood

Date:Wed 16 Oct
Price:Pay What You Feel

I love Robin Hood. We’ve been best mates for over forty years - ever since I met him as a seven-year old boy in autumn 1975. Recently, we’ve spent a lot more time discussing the state of the world. He is 100% convinced that the main reason for the recent turmoil is down to the growing gap between the rich and poor. Robin says that money is a fiction that relies on mutual trust and that we can change the story of money. This show is his idea. He says it’s the only thing I can do if I want to make the world a better place. And, like Robin says, we can definitely do better than we’re doing at the moment.

ME & ROBIN HOOD is Hoipolloi’s second show in THE LOOSE CHANGE Trilogy questioning the value of art and the power of story. Following on from THE DUKE, which captured the public’s imagination with its combination of theatre and fundraising and has raised nearly £50,000 to date, ME & ROBIN HOOD seeks to raise money for Street Child United. Audiences so far, have raised over £20,000 for the worthwhile charity who use 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 to build a life away from the streets.

Please bring cash to the show, we have more work to do to change this By Shôn Dale-Jones in collaboration with Hamish Pirie.

"engaging and thoughtful as it gnaws away at inequality of opportunities and the widening gap between rich and poor, and asks whether art really can change the world."
The Guardian – Lyn Gardner

ME & ROBIN HOOD is clever and thoughtful and angry. It's about home and friendship and memory and what artistic work is worth, and at its heart is a very real question about what it is to be a radical in the 21st century."
The Scotsman | 4 Star Review

“Engaging and mesmerising as ever, we also see a disturbingly different side to our loveable storyteller with an explosive and believable anger-fuelled rant at the outrage of financial inequality. But I bet everyone dug deep for the collection buckets at the end… Entertaining and thought-provoking.”
