A quick read, as most plays are, this play is pretty clearly intended as a "kids' show." The play's own blurb describes it as a Monty-Python-esque re-telling of the Robin hood legend, and that's pretty accurate. It clearly has the potential for a lot of goofy antics, and the running gags (sometimes literally involving running) are pretty funny, too. I'm looking forward to seeing what our director will do with it. It's kinda nice to see a play use clean jokes and still be funny.

Tim This intrigues me, as I know your standards for Python-esque humor would be challenging to meet. I'll look forward to it. Maybe, since it's clean, I'll even get to bring Steven.
