The Drum


Me & Robin Hood is Hoipolloi’s brand new show about Shôn Dale-Jones’s longstanding relationship with his favourite fictional friend.

Shôn first met Robin Hood in the autumn of 1975, as a seven-year-old-boy and they have been good mates ever since. Robin’s been going crazy recently about the direction our world is heading. This show is his idea. He’s convinced we need to change the story of money if we really want to do something about inequality and the growing gap between the rich and the poor. To start the process, we’re selling tickets to the show for a fiver or a tenner. You know what you can afford, we’ll leave it up to you but both are a steal by today’s market.

Me & Robin Hood seeks to raise money for Street Child United, a charity that uses the power of sport to change the way the world negatively sees and treats street-connected children. Robin suggests you might want to bring cash on the night…

A piece that is constantly questioning what we value and hold dear.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian on The Duke

Powerful, candid, gripping, funny, poignant, sad, worrying, inspiring. Shôn’s performance is vivid, passionate, insightful.

Audience comment

Robin Hood has arrived in Edinburgh, and he’s imploring us to get out of our comfy seats and rob the bank – who’s in?

ThreeWeeks Edinburgh ★★★★

The highlight of the show is its emotional build-up to an ending that – in a powerful and heartfelt manner – urges the audience to be courageous and stand up for positive change.

Tickets are charged at the bargain price of £5 or £10. You know what you can afford, so you decide what to pay. Robin says both tickets are a steal, so it’s up to you how much you thieve.
