Robin Hood: An Elegy follows a Black Robin Hood who magically transcends space and time experiencing state-sanctioned racism. Set both in 2015 and the past, Robin’s plight mirrors and invokes the ethos of #blacklivesmatter in a struggle to assert humanity, dignity, and cunning against long-standing foes. In an age-old fight against white supremacy for justice and freedom, will Robin prevail?

Hi MedievalPOC! I just wanted to let you know, I’m part of a production in Austin, TX putting on a black Robin Hood (with time travel) and your tumblr has def been mentioned in our conversation! we are conceptualizing how Robin Hood could have been black, and how he might exist in modern times. I just wanted to let you know, because I thought you might be interested, but a shout-out would also be much appreciated! Thanks! Here’s info on our show: https://www.facebook.com/events/854218694628119/
