Hood by Woodbridge Theatre Company

by Katherine Chandler
Sold out
Part of NT Connections

Hood’s Mam has run off with a bacon licking vegetarian and her Dad spends his days and nights lost in a chair, feeding his addiction to ‘The Waterboys’.There’s no money left, there’s five struggling kids to feed and interfering Father Tuck just won’t let them be. But our modern day hero, Robyn Hood is determined to keep her family together, whatever it takes…

A modern day tale about family and food.
