Me & Robin Hood: Change the Story at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 8–9 June 2018, from £10.00 - Book now

A 7-year-old Shôn Dale-Jones first encountered Robin Hood in November 1975 through the mini-series The Legend of Robin Hood. They have been the best of friends ever since. Now 40 years on, Shôn and Robin look again at a contemporary world which continues to divide the rich and the poor.

Through the eyes of the now adult Shôn and his ageless childhood friend, Me & Robin Hood asks us to reflect on the opportunities life has given us, to question what society really values and encourage us to challenge and question narratives around money.

Talking about his inspiration for the show, Dale Jones says “Me & Robin Hood is my response to how the growing gap between the rich and the poor is affecting the way the world is being shaped. It’s my attempt to encourage us to imagine the lives of those living without the opportunities ‘we’ have – ‘we’ being the liberal-minded, well-educated theatre-going public. It’s my attempt to encourage ‘us’ to do something about it.”

Following the performance at HOME Manchester audience members can donate money for Street Child United World Cup 2018, a charity that uses 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.
