ME & ROBIN HOOD

Change The Story

By Shôn Dale-Jones in collaboration with Hamish Pirie.
“Robin Hood was fast becoming a role model
Influencing the young
The next generation
We can’t have a nation of Robin Hoods said The Sheriff
There’ll be no rich people to rob”


ME & ROBIN HOOD is our newest show about Shôn’s longstanding relationship with his favourite fictional friend, the prince of thieves himself.

Continuing to question the value of art and following on from The Duke which has raised over £50,000 to date, ME & ROBIN HOOD has been raising 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, so they can be protected, respected and supported to build a life away from the streets.

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. He can’t believe there hasn’t been a bigger reaction to all the madness since Brexit and Donald Trump moved into The White House. This show is his idea. He’s convinced we need to change the story of money and share the opportunity we’ve been given if we really want to do something about the growing gap between the rich and the poor.

It’d be great if you can join us – the more people who come to the show, the better the chances are that something good might happen. To start the process, we’re selling tickets at a modest price (or as Robin says, ‘a steal’ – well below the market value) and we’re asking everyone to please bring cash to the show, we have more work to do to change this story…

In 2019 ME & ROBIN HOOD was made into a radio play by BBC Radio 4 and was selected as Pick of the Week praised for being “An inventive piece of storytelling magic” and “a charming comic drama with a heart of steel”.

ME & ROBIN HOOD has raised over £20,000 and will continue to tour in 2019. In the meantime if you’d to support our Street Child United campaign, you can do so by using our Just Giving page to donate to the cause by clicking here.

“With so little needed to say so much, there is no doubt that Shon Dale-Jones is one of the best living storytellers in the world today.”

The Outlier  ★★★★★

“A thoughtful piece about inequality, myths and taking control of your own story… This a storytelling show that teasingly plays with fact and fiction as its suggests that we all have the agency to change our own narrative… it is 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.”
